Advocate Fadak Alfayadh will be debunking myths about people seeking asylum and offering a compassionate path forward.

As another federal election looms, Australia's harsh border policies and ongoing mistreatment of refugees and people seeking asylum continue to be key issues.

On Thursday May 16, creative collective Ladies of Leisure is hosting a special workshop with community lawyer and advocate Fadak Alfayadh, a former refugee, to debunk harmful myths and offer compassionate solutions to the shameful political stalemate.

Alfayadh believes in a welcoming, diverse Australia and will share her own experience of arriving as a refugee 15 years ago, before opening a discussion about allyship, and sharing practical tips for how best to embrace – and support – people seeking safety on our shores.

From 6.30pm to 8.30pm.
