Lunch at Hopes Cafe

- Community Announcement -

Tuesday, 4 August 2020 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Hopes Cafe, Cnr Portrush Road and The Parade, Beulah Park

Organizer: David Winderlich (Use '.' and '@' signs when you copy this address.)
DavidW [AT] unitingcommunities [DOT] org

Hi everyone, we have all discussed how to support international students, migrants who are waiting to become permanent residents, asylum seekers and temporary workers. And because all of these groups have difficulties because they lack the full rights of Australian citizens, we have been discussing how they could work together to improve their situation.

As a first step you are invited to lunch on Tuesday August 4 at Hopes Café. This lunch is a step in that direction. It involves Hopes Café Random Acts of Welcome (represented by Liellie) which has hosted these lunches in the past, Young Christian Workers with Umes, and other individuals. These Random Acts of Welcome Lunches provide an opportunity for people to enjoy each others company, meet new people and share opportunities for mutual support. They will be the first part of a project for Social Work Students based at Hopes Café.

Slaves in the System – Online panel discussion

- Community Announcement -

Thursday 6 August, 6 pm (ACST)

Presented by The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre,
as part of the Just A Thought series.

Modern slavery exists across the world, and Australia is no exception, but Australia can take a global leadership role in combating modern slavery.

Our panel will discuss the Modern Slavery Act (2018), describing the Act‘s guiding principles together with the responsibilities of individuals and businesses to respect and protect human rights.

The panel will discuss the prevalence of modern slavery in Australia and across the globe, including human trafficking, forced labour, servitude, debt bondage and forced marriage. Discussion will also consider how Australia exacerbates the global slavery problem by importing products that are potentially produced through forced labour and what we can do to remove slavery in our supply chains.

The panel, facilitated by journalist and author Tory Shepherd, includes:

  • Khadija Gbla, Human Rights Activist Skye
  • Kakoschke-Moore, Policy and Research Leader, JFA Purple Orange
  • Carolyn Kitto Co-Director, Be Slavery Free

This event is presented as part of Just A Thought, an exclusive In-Conversation series presented by The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre with Tory Shepherd.
