The Romero Centre Welcome Walk is on 5 June at Davies Park, West End.
The aim of the Welcome Walk is to bring attention to the thousands of long, exhausting, and dangerous journeys of people who have had to flee wars, persecution, or civil conflicts to seek safety and protection in Australia. The Walk will actively honour and respect everybody’s right to a safe refuge and to acknowledge every community’s right to be a welcoming and humane shelter .
The Walk will bring together people to publicly express their welcoming spirit, and express their solidarity with the principle that no one should ever have to walk alone in their quest for safety. After all, safety, ultimately, can only be found in a caring community. Safety is a global right and responsibility.
