Refugees Welcome! Whangarei Talk On Refugees & the Election

About this image

Whangarei Fritter Festival

Sorry, this event has been and gone.

Murdoch Stephens from the Doing Our Bit campaign will speak to where the refugee crisis has gone in the last year, what New Zealand’s policies are - including the new community sponsorship model – and how local communities can get involved.

Find out more about the campaign here:

A local MC (to be announced) will start the evening, joining Murdoch to welcome him to the city and speak to the issue from a Northland perspective, the last date of the tour!

We'd expect the evening will run something like this: - 6:05pm - Welcome from MC - 6:15pm - Murdoch Stephens on the refugee crisis, NZs response and how you can get help. - 6:45pm - Questions and Answers. - 7:00pm - Tea and coffee - 7:20pm - Further discussion in small group of locals keen to help with getting MPs and candidate pledges.

We'll have t-shirts and beautiful screen printed A2 'Refugees Welcome' posters for a small charge. Our election action booklets plus stickers will be available for a donation if you can or free if not!

Please invite friends from other cities to our full schedule of events:

World Refugee Day launch of the Doing Our Bit nationwide tour, 20 June, Wellington. Parliament lawn. Noon; speeches from 12.30pm.
