On June 20 the world commemorates the strength, courage, and resilience of men, women and children who are forced to flee their home under threat of persecution, conflict and violence through the observation of the United Nations’ (UN) World Refugee Day. Student Welfare invites you to join us at a morning tea to recognise the contribution of refugees within both the UC and Canberra community.
Attendees will have the opportunity to listen to UC Alumni guest speaker Diana Abdel-Rahman who is an acknowledged presenter on topical issues related to the Muslim community. Diana chairs the Canberra Multicultural Community Forum and has been the recipient of numerous honours and awards including in 2011 she was honoured with an award and trophy for her contribution in setting up Canberra’s dedicated multi-lingual radio station CMS, Canberra Multicultural Services.
