Murdoch Stephens from the Doing Our Bit campaign will speak to where the refugee crisis has gone in the last year, what New Zealand’s policies are - including the new community sponsorship model – and how local communities can get involved.

Find out more about the campaign here: http://www.doingourbit.co.nz/

A local MC (to be announced) will start the evening, joining Murdoch to welcome him to the city and speak to the issue from a Northland perspective, the last date of the tour!

We'd expect the evening will run something like this:
- 6:05pm - Welcome from MC
- 6:15pm - Murdoch Stephens on the refugee crisis, NZs response and how you can get help.
- 6:45pm - Questions and Answers.
- 7:00pm - Tea and coffee
- 7:20pm - Further discussion in small group of locals keen to help with getting MPs and candidate pledges.

We'll have t-shirts and beautiful screen printed A2 'Refugees Welcome' posters for a small charge. Our election action booklets plus stickers will be available for a donation if you can or free if not!

Please invite friends from other cities to our full schedule of events:
