These fact sheets use real-life stories from communities as examples of ways human rights are relevant for our lives. The fact sheets aim to inspire community members who are literate in English that it’s possible to make a difference in your community by being a leader in areas of human rights/advocacy and participation. These resources come out of learnings from facilitation of Our Community Our Rights, a project that engages migrant and refugee women in human rights based advocacy training and project work, and promotes participation in Australian society. Our Community, Our Rights has worked with women from South Sudan, Burma and India over three iterations. More information about the project is available here.
We have also produced a series of fact sheets for service providers about lessons we learned through facilitating a human rights project with refugee and migrant communities.
