This year our Palm Sunday Justice for Refugees event on Sunday 28 March 2021 @ 1pm will be both live at the UCIC Hall in Perth and online.
A live event in the city will be small in numbers but big on heart, streamed and accessible to dedicated hub groups, gatherings and individuals.
We’re encouraging groups big and small to gather on the day and link in, to demonstrate a broad and united movement of people and organisations who call for justice and dignity for refugees and people seeking asylum.
Details of the events both in Perth and hub groups is now available – go to Register 2021 for information!
Advocacy and Campaigns
On Palm Sunday 28 March groups big and small will be gathering around the state to show their support and to demonstrate a broad and united movement of people and organisations who call for justice and dignity for refugees and people seeking asylum.

Here are some actions and advocacy you can get involved in on the day:
Support CARAD (Centre for Asylum Seekers, Refugees and Detainees) – Pantry Packs are a very practical way of helping CARAD support asylum seekers through their foodbank program. CARAD’s foodbank provides food relief for people seeking asylum in Perth. People seeking asylum aren’t eligible for government supports and COVID-19 financial relief. Your donation will help them provide essentials to those who need it most.
CARAD Financial Support is also a vital for their ongoing work. Please go to their website for details about pantry packs and financial support options – https://www.carad.org.au/donate
#GameOver – It’s time to call #GameOver – take action to get all those trapped by Australia on Nauru and Papua New Guinea to safety. This campaign by Amnesty International encourages participants to sign the petition and continue to share information about the campaign – https://gameover.org.au/
Time for a Home – This is a national campaign demanding the release and resettlement of the remaining refugees and people seeking asylum in immigration detention in Australia. No matter where we come from or how we got here, everyone needs a safe place to call home. More information about the #Timeforahome campaign here – https://www.timeforahome.com.au/
