This weekend on Saturday 22 June, in cities across Australia, people will Walk Together to show our welcome to this country, and that we recognise the equality and dignity of all people.
We believe Australians are a welcoming, generous and compassionate people. We believe an Australia is possible where prejudice is unpopular and cruelty hurts at the polls. An Australia that recognises the equality and dignity of all people - no matter who you are, where you're from or how you arrived here – and extends our values of fairness and mateship to everyone.
We dream of a nation that celebrates diversity, made up of communities where people of our First Nations, asylum seekers, refugees, international students, skilled migrants and every other human being can experience the joy and security of belonging.
Walk Together takes place on the Saturday of Refugee Week. Join us at 1pm on Saturday 22nd June as we Walk Together in recognition that if we're all people, we're all equal.
In cities and regional centres all over Australia, you're invited to join this celebration of diversity and present a picture to our leaders and media of the Australia that is possible.
An Australia that recognises in its public debate, media conversation and legislation that "if we're all people, we're all equal". Equally deserving of freedom, fairness, opportunity to contribute, welcome and belonging.
If we're all people, we're all equal. Join us at 1pm Saturday 22 June in your city.
