Walk TogetherSaturday 23 June 2012, 01:00pm
The Canberra Walk Together Event is being held during Refugee Week on Saturday June 23rd at 1pm from Stage 88 in Commonwealth Park.
Everyone is invited to 'Walk Together' in recognition that, although we've all arrived here via different pathways, we share a common Australian journey. We're Indigenous Australians, we're refugees, we're skilled migrants, we're Australian born, we're international students, we're asylum seekers... we're people. Walk Together into a future where diversity is celebrated and fear is replaced with welcome.
The walk starts at Stage 88 in Commonwealth Park, walking across Commonwealth Avenue Bridge, along the lake and into Reconciliation Place. There will also be speakers and entertainment.
This walk is happening at the same time all across Australia - so head along and give a big Canberran welcome to all!
