Join us as we hear from Dawit, settlement lead at the Red Cross and himself a former refugee, and Jacob, also at the Red Cross, about the refugee crisis, the successes and failures of New Zealand’s political framework in response, and the lived experience of a former refugee. Together we will listen and learn what it is we can each do to help in some way.

This will also be available to watch via Facebook livestream for those of you not located in Wellington.

We invite you to join our kōrero as we hear from Golriz Ghahraman, MP and Iranian-Kiwi former refugee, followed by a screening of short films depicting former refugees' experiences.

Thousands of people have been resettled in New Zealand as part of the quota refugee programme. Driven to leave their homes due to fear of violence and persecution, refugees face a journey to a new country strife with the unknown. Yet this isn't the end of their journey.  Once these refugees arrive in New Zealand they are faced with the task of navigating and reconciling a new social and cultural reality. 

Join us to learn about what this journey looks like, New Zealand's political response, and the action that is required to better support those who have been forced to leave their homes.
