(ONLINE) From Recommendations to Action: Local responses to the UN-WGEPAD preliminary report
In December 2022, the UN Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent (WGEPAD) made a historic first visit to Australia. At the end of their trip the WGEPAD released a preliminary report with extensive recommendations. The final report will be presented to the United Nations Human Rights Council in September 2023. This co-badged event, with the Western Sydney University Social Justice Network and the African Australian Advocacy Centre, will bring together key experts from the academy, community organisations and local government services who are working with African diaspora communities in Greater Western Sydney (GWS). They will critically consider what this report means for local community action.
