Why Run for Refugees?
By joining the Run for Refugees in 2012 you will help raise funds for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) partners in The Last Survivor film screening.
The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre aims to protect and uphold the human rights, wellbeing and dignity of asylum seekers by providing Aid, Empowerment, Justice and Community programs.
“For 10 years the ASRC has been fighting for the human rights of asylum seekers. Over 7000 people have been provided with sanctuary, support and hope by the ASRC in this time and thousands of people have won their freedom through our work. As we enter our 11th year of operation, we find ourselves in the toughest of times, the demand for help at an all time high and the political climate at an all time low. However we can all make a difference.”
