Rainbow Path’s So Far to Go panel on refugees’ and asylum seekers’ rights was scheduled for tonight, Monday 15 February, as part of the Auckland Pride festival. We regret that it has had to be postponed because Auckland is in Alert level 3.
This panel is really important for us. So Rainbow Path will definitely still be holding the panel discussion – probably in March at the Ellen Melville Centre. It will be a great opportunity to find out more about the changes needed to fully respect the rights of all refugees and asylum seekers in Aotearoa NZ – including additional challenges faced by those who are members of our Rainbow communities.
Rainbow Path is really glad that we were still able to have our stall at the Big Gay Out yesterday. A huge thanks to Refugees as Survivors NZ for booking the space and sharing it with us. We were an awesome team together.
Rainbow Path reached out to our panel speakers last night and we hope to confirm a new date soon. We will also send everyone who registered for the panel discussion an email with the new event date.
