This year, Pride Foundation Australia identified LGBTIQA+ refugees and asylum seekers living in Australia as one of our areas of focus for 2019. We have been working alongside our LGBTIQA+ refugee and asylum seeker advisory group to identify the priority issues that would benefit from our funding, including grant rounds, commissioning research, and supporting collaboration.
In the lead up to the End of Financial Year, we are running a grassroots fundraising campaign to raise the funds we need to support this work in better understanding and addressing the needs of LGBTIQA+ refugees and asylum seekers living in Australia, as well as the needs of other vulnerable groups within the LGBTQIA+ community.
Connection and community have always been the greatest strength of LGBTIQA+ advocacy. That’s why we’re asking you to help us raise $30,000 to support this work, either by donating or by taking 5 minutes to create your own Crowd Raiser page that you can send to your friends and networks.
