Refugees and Asylum Seekers

Over the years SWAN has had a variety of speakers discussing the complicated social justice issues around Asylum Seekers and refugees in Australia. Several members of SWAN are regular visitors to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre and are happy to take any items donated at SWAN meetings to the ASRC.  A box is located by the registration desk where donations of non perishable food and toiletries can be deposited.
