Publisher/HostAuckland Pride Festival
Join a discussion with MP Golriz Ghahraman, Rainbow Path members, lawyers & community advocates about refugee and asylum seekers' rights
About this Event

"So far to go" depicts both the distance Rainbow refugees and asylum seekers have travelled to Aotearoa NZ and the huge gaps in our immigration laws and policies that leave refugees and asylum seekers isolated with inadequate support, sometimes held in detention. 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.

Our expert panel includes:

  • the Green Party's Refugee Spokesperson, MP Golriz Ghahraman
  • Rainbow refugees and asylum seekers
  • the Asylum Seekers' Support Trust
  • refugee lawyer Stewart Dalley and
  • a member of the Immigration and Protection Tribunal.

COVID-19 has exposed the lack of support for asylum seekers and refugees in Aotearoa New Zealand, particularly those on temporary visas. It has also seen an increase in xenophobia and anti-immigration sentiments. How can Rainbow communities better support refugees and asylum seekers, including through advocating for changes to immigration policies?

Rainbow Path is a peer support and advocacy network comprised of Rainbow refugees and asylum seekers, and some Rainbow migrants and human rights allies. Our core role is to improve awareness about refugee and asylum seekers' rights within Rainbow communities and knowledge of Rainbow issues across the refugee and asylum sectors.
