There is another way.

The current approach of inflicting ever more cruelty on refugees, including dumping them on our poorest neighbours, will cost many lives and billions of dollars, and is wrong. The right way forward needs a commitment to a genuine regional approach that cares for refugees with the kind of political leadership shown after the Vietnam War.

Come and hear from leading legal, political, humanitarian and human rights experts about genuine and effective responses to this complex humanitarian and political issue.

Speakers include: Julian Burnside; Senator Scott Ludlam (Australian Greens Senator); Mary Anne Kenny (Director, Curtin University Centre for Human Rights Education); Rosemary Hudson Miller (Uniting Church Associate General Secretary Justice & Mission); and Phil Chilton (Respondent, Refugee Rights Action Network). The moderator for the evening will be Sami Shah who is a comedian and journalist and will kick off the evening with some stand up comedy.
