Civic participation can include voting, advocacy, political activism, volunteering, and general participation in government and democratic processes. Guest speakers will share insights on what our sector has been doing well regarding civic participation, and are from organisations which have developed programs and campaigns to support our migrant and refugees to participate fully in society. We invite you to join us to hear about their experiences, achievements and lessons learned along the way.
