Solidarity Awards 2019
July 14 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm AEST$60
Palms Australia’s Solidarity Awards recognise the inspiring individuals, organisations and community groups who have reached beyond barriers to act in solidarity, cooperate across cultures and achieve outcomes that support a just, sustainable, interdependent and peaceful world free of poverty. Without this support for our work, Palms would not be able to reach as many communities and make as long-lasting an impact as we do.
We invite our supporters, our returned volunteers and the family and friends of our next cohort of volunteers to join us in celebration of the Palms community. Guests will enjoy a delicious lunch and be welcomed to meet new volunteers who will be commissioned into their new roles abroad. Each of these volunteers will be departing for Palms placements in 2019 and 2020.
Our special guest speaker is Sr Pat Fox, an Australian missionary who was deported from the Philippines in 2018 following her arrest for political interference. Sr Pat was famously critical of the Filipino government’s militaristic rule and advocated against human rights abuses committed under the government’s activities to combat the drug trade. Having lived 27 years in the Philippines, Sr Pat joins us to discuss how foreign volunteers can advocate for change, with a focus on how the foundation of such advocacy must be built on local relationships and interests. Her experience offers invaluable, practical insights for our volunteers in-country and those about to depart on their placement.
