Thanks for the invite, Flemington Community Centre -to your Annual Iftar. Another Ramadan staple, this event is a delight to attend as it is developed and delivered by local young people attracting other young people from all cultural backgrounds to increase understanding and reduce racism.
I gave a brief speech about how communities can learn to work together and advocate/respond to barriers and naysayers. Diversity is a powerful asset.
These young people have demonstrated capacity and desire to lead, contribute and represent. Where opportunities are lacking, I encouraged them to carve their own and trust in their innate strength and grit.
I met some marvellous guests, including the inspirational Amparoo from Columbia and Louise, of Portuguese/Iraqi descent
