August | Youth Community Advocacy: When not treated in a fair and equal way, it is important to be able to advocate for individual or community rights and needs. MCOT’s vision is of a culturally and linguistically diverse and harmonious Tasmania that is just, fair and inclusive – where people with diverse backgrounds have the opportunity to participate in and contribute to Tasmanian society. This workshop introduces advocacy pathways, cases and strategies to address issues faced by (members of) the multicultural community in Tasmania.

This workshop will provide theory and exercises with the aim to better understand individual strengths and challenges, as well as strategies to navigate challenging situations.
