Get involved with Road To Refuge!

As the horror of Trump’s Muslim Ban came into effect, we were reminded again of the dehumanising and toxic rhetoric that dominate Australia’s own refugee debate. While families were being torn apart overseas, our former Immigration Minister Scott Morrison proclaimed that Trump’s ban on refugees showed the world was ‘catching up’ to Australia’s policies — the same policies that turn away and lock up people seeking safety while silencing their perspective.

There’s never been a more important time to shine on a light on the realities of Australia’s treatment of people seeking sanctuary and right now, Road To Refuge has some fantastic opportunities for you to get involved.

Road To Refuge was founded on a simple mission: to explore and untangle the complexities of seeking asylum by promoting the voices and stories of those who with lived experience. Our aim has been to create space for our community to interrogate Australia’s treatment of people seeking safety.

In 2017 we’ll be working even harder to bring the realities of seeking asylum out from the shadows. To do this, we’ll be looking to expand our online advocacy with a Communications Manager and Social Media Coordinator, while also continuing to run unique community engagement events with an Operations Team Leader and Dinner With Layla Project Coordinator. We’re looking to have a huge planning weekend on the 25th and 26th of February, so if you want get involved get you applications in quick! Join our team and help change the refugee narrative in Australia for good.

Position Descriptions

Email info@roadtorefuge.com to express interest in any of the roles, applications close on Monday 27th of February.

    I’d love to help but don’t know how. I’m a TESOL and LOTE teacher (retired) and do still
    teach refugees, asylum seekers and people on bridging visas but would like to do more
    (I’m on the pension & a bit short of money at the moment (someone needed my financial help – will be OK in March) and also don’t like traveling further than my side of the city (I live in Clayton and don’t mind driving to Dandenong, Bentleigh, Waverley, Box Hill etc.).
