Unity in our diversity

VOLUNTEERS from the Multicultural Council of Tasmania banded together to launch a new campaign on Parliament House Lawns at Hobart’s Harmony Day celebrations on 21 March.

The campaign, “Unity”, encourages Tasmanians to become a Unity “friend” of the organisation, which represents the interests of migrants, refugees and international students in the state.

By becoming a Unity friend, members of the community can show their support for a “culturally diverse and harmonious Tasmania”, where all people have the opportunity to participate in and contribute to community life.

A Unity friend is kept informed of policy news, receives invitations to events and helps to spread the campaign’s message.

Multicultural Council of Tasmania chief executive officer Anna Reynolds said it was important that people had the opportunity to demonstrate their support for a more multicultural Hobart.

“Our goal is to build a bigger and stronger network of Tasmanians who support a more multicultural Tasmania,” she said.

“We know that most people in Hobart recognise the greater benefit that migrants bring to our city.

“The Unity campaign is a way for all those people to make a statement of their support for having an even more diverse community.”
