Canberra Advocacy for Asylum Seekers

Members of Canberra’s Faith-Based Working Group (FBWG) of the Refugee Action Campaign (RAC) advocate for refugees and asylum-seekers within their own faith communities, raise awareness, mobilise political action and, in some cases, provide practical support within the local refugee community.

Brigidine Sister Jane Keogh CSB is an active member of this group and for over twenty years has worked with and supported refugees.
