RAR Conference


Rural Australians for Refugees Albury Wodonga is hosting this Australia wide gathering in early April 2018.

Organiser: Rural Australians for Refugees Albury Wodonga

When: Friday 6 April 2018 to Sunday 8 April 2018

Where: Albury Wodonga (locations to be advertised soon)

Why: to quote one of the founding members of RAR Albury Wodonga; Judy Brewer-Fischer AO (wife of Tim Fischer) “There comes a time when you can no longer sit back and watch a humanitarian crisis of the dimension that we are witnessing in Australia today and pretend that you are powerless – we are a group of concerned local citizens – we believe that the current policy of indefinite mandatory detention of asylum seekers, many of whom are clearly genuine refugees, is morally and economically indefensible.”
