Do you want to learn more about the issues that affect people seeking asylum in our community? Come and join us at the Torquay Library for a community conversation lead by a local facilitator. This will be an open discussion amongst attendees based on shared values, to help people learn more and explore different approaches. There will also be resources available. Specifically, we'd love to have along people who are 'on the fence' on this issue - who are unsure of what they can do but would like to learn more.
