Alison Battisson is an immigration lawyer, Bradfield local and is the Director Principal at Human Rights for All (HR4A). Alison founded HR4A which is a leading non-profit organisation working for the liberty of asylum seekers and refugees through legal action, advocacy and education. She represents refugees pro bono, including several who are in hotel detention in Melbourne and Brisbane. In 2021, she played a central role in helping the Afghan women's soccer team escape from Afghanistan when the Taliban took over.

Mostafa Azimitabar (Moz) is a member of Iran’s Kurdish minority who fled racist repression in his homeland to seek sanctuary in a safe country. He was detained by Australian authorities for 2,737. Since being released, Moz has been advocating for the people who are left behind in detention.

“If I am able to obtain my freedom, there should be the opportunity for the others seeking asylum to have their freedom as well. Until all of us are free, none of us are truly free.”

Sue Drury will speak about the work of the Roseville Asylum Seeker and Refugee Support Group, at the Roseville Uniting Church.

Nicolette Boele is a Bradfield local and your community independent candidate in the forthcoming federal election. 

Voices of Bradfield is a local community organisation that advocates for better representation in federal parliament. The group was created by local community members. We want our federal representative to listen to the electorate and take our voices and concerns to Canberra.

After the talks, there will be time to ask questions, then you will have the chance to meet the speakers over afternoon tea. 

We invite you to join us to learn more about Australia's policies and the people-powered campaigns that can make a real difference.
