capsa toolkitThe Catholics in Alliance with People Seeking Asylum (CAPSA) has produced a toolkit for refugee action entitled, 'Engage Hearts and Minds'.

This resource aims to equip parishes, workplaces and local community groups to get involved in growing a culture of compassion and advocate for fair and humane treatment for people seeking asylum in Australia within the Catholic community.

It contains key tools to run the following activities focused on shifting community attitudes towards people seeking asylum:
• Circles of Silence
• RightTrack Community Conversations
• Meetings with members of parliament

Download the CAPSA Toolkit Engage Hearts and Minds here.

A hardcopy can be obtained on request via this link: https://capsa.org.au/engage-hearts-minds-toolkit-refugee-action/.
