Virtual Roundtable 3 - Building power in migrant communities - MWC Conference 2023

Join other leaders of migrant workers, communities, and organisations on a roundtable to discuss how to build power in migrant communities.

Over the past decade, Australia has witnessed an erosion of migrants' rights and their ability to settle with dignity. Recently, however, momentum is building towards reversing this pattern and crafting a more equitable migration system.

This shift has been fuelled by the collective voice of thousands of migrant workers, supported by crucial allies in the trade union movement, community services sector, faith-based organisations, and others. As we venture into the process of reforming our migration system, it's critical that migrant workers are seen and heard directly by the Australian public and decision-makers, for migrant workers to be able to speak powerfully and with unity. As allies and migrant workers, we must amplify each other's voices and stand in solidarity to drive impactful change.

At this virtual roundtable, participants will be invited to make contributions around the following key questions:

  • What does empowerment mean within local communities?
  • What are the barriers that communities face in increasing solidarity and empowerment?
  • What must trade unions be aware of or change in order to attract more migrant workers in joining their union?
  • Are there any empowerment movements happening in your community that you would like to share with everyone?
  • What are some goals that we can strive towards together in order to build up solidarity amongst different communities?
