Every Australian needs to meet Fadak.
Every Australian needs to meet Fadak. Fadak is a 25 year old Australian lawyer and community advocate. Forced to flee with her family because of the invasion of Iraq in 2003, Fadak knows how important a strong community is to a bright future.
Despite Australia’s politicians’ attempts to divide multicultural Australia by dehumanising her and other people seeking protection, the Australian people welcomed Fadak and supported her to become a lawyer to carve a path for others in her footsteps.
But in fifteen years, Fadak has also seen Australia’s response to the world’s largest refugee crises change from a welcoming embrace into crimes against innocent people seeking protection.
Meet Fadak is Australia’s first refugee-led national speaking tour:
- to tell the real stories of refugees in Australia
- to increase Australia’s humanitarian refugee intake
- to create a long term Australian solution to how Australia treats people seeking protection
With your support, Fadak and Road to Refuge are raising $10,000 so that as many Australian communities, town hall, church and hopefully Australian parliament will meet Fadak.
Attend the campaign launch
Fadak and Road to Refuge are holding a campaign launch for Meet Fadak on June 19.
