Last night’s 2015 annual dinner and fundraiser for the Australian Jewish Democratic Society at the fantastic Arabesque was a full house and a great success. Thank you to the hard working staff and executive members that volunteered to make it happen. It was great to so many members and supporters.
Shen Narayanasamy’s talk was inspiring, as she shared with us the unique yet relatable circumstances that led her to working on GetUp and No Business in Abuse, along with the shocking details of the refugee detention industry of this country. Good discussion followed, leaving us motivated to push corporations harder. Click here to read the No Business in Abuse report into Transfield’s (now Broadspectrum’s) complicity in abuse.
Thank you to the buyers of the auctioned rug, glassware and art, along with the raffle tickets (congratulations to Colleen Hartland on winning those delicious products from Canaan Fair Trade), t-shirts (buy yours here), and the other goodies.
We are most grateful to all of you who came along and helped the AJDS continue its work through your participation and generous donations.
