Other presenters during the day include:

Sr. Brigid Arthur - Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project;

Rev. Ian Smith - Victorian Council of Churches;

Jill Ruzbacky - UCA Justice and International Mission Unit;

Misha Coleman - Australian Churches' Refugee Taskforce; and

We'd love you to come and join us and hear of the work already being undertaken by various groups across Victoria, and share together ideas, experiences and our joys and concerns!
