In Search of Safety: a Red Cross Community Presentation

Wednesday 24th May, 10.30 – 11.30am at the Margaret River Library

Understanding the experience of refugees or asylum seekers, in their home country, their journey to Australia and their new life here is crucial to appreciating the barriers that block such individuals from thriving in our community. The session can help participants recognise how they can better engage with such migrants. Red Cross  aims to provide insights and encourage critical thinking about the global and local experiences of people forcibly displaced, covering:

  • Red Cross involvement with migration
  • Context on global forced displacement and associated international human rights frameworks
  • Australia’s relevance and role
  • The difference between an asylum seeker and refugee
  • Demographics of humanitarian settlement in Australia and their experiences

All welcome. Light refreshments provided. RSVP to the Library Email: or Ph: 9780 5600
