Sarah Hanson-Young visits Hope’s Cafe
Greens Senator Sarah Hanson-Young shared some time with us at Hope’s Cafe on Friday July 4.
She spoke with most people there, keen to get an insight into the plight of the many new arrivals who regularly attend Hope’s Café for English lessons, a good meal and advocacy.
She addressed the gathered, stating that she wanted to learn more about refugees who have suffered injustice and hardship so she could advocate for them.
The Senator said she is fighting to make everyday life for people on bridging visas easier, so that life does not have to be a continual struggle.
“I’m standing up and trying to make things fairer,” she said.
Many of the new arrivals with stories to tell spent some time sharing their thoughts and opinions with Sarah.
We hope to see her again soon as the activities at Hope’s Café progress.
