Every Australian needs to meet Fadak. Fadak is a 26 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 attempts by politicians to turn Australia against Fadak 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. Through the #MeetFadak campaign, we amplified those stories of support and uncovered new stories from people like Fadak.
Meet Fadak was 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 in June and July 2018, Fadak and Road to Refuge raised $10,000 so Fadak could meet communities across the country.
