Friends Event in Honour of World Refugee Day

Diaspora Action Australia’s second Friends Event for 2015 will take place on 26 June, in honour of World Refugee Day. This event will give attendees the chance to learn about and acknowledge the important contribution made by refugees to our community.

Come along to meet like-minded people who share your passion for peace building, development and human rights. Stay for drinks, light snacks and good conversation.

Speaker: At this Friends Event we have the privilege to hear from Lensa Dinka, a leading member of the Oromo community here in Melbourne. Lensa has worked with the OSGA, a group dedicated to raising awareness of the human rights issues affecting the Oromo and other oppressed peoples in Ethiopia. She is also involved with the AFAAN, a group dedicated to revitalizing the Oromo language. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear Lensa’s story!

The Friends of DAA Network is an initiative launched by Diaspora Action Australia in late 2013. It is a network of dedicated people who have donated much of their time to work with DAA. It is people who are passionate about supporting diaspora organisations, it is communities that have worked with DAA, and it is previous staff and volunteers who have helped to shape the organisation.

As part of the Friends Network, Diaspora Action Australia organises several social events throughout the year. They are a great way to hear from wonderful speakers, and to connect with other like-minded individuals who share a passion for peace, human rights and development. We hope to see you there!
