Donald Trump’s ban on immigration from many Muslim majority countries is affecting many people in Melbourne, including members of the Somali, Sudanese and Iranian communities.

Sunday 5 February, 2pm – 4pm

North Melbourne Community Centre, 49-53 Buncle St, North Melbourne



Greens MPs for Melbourne Adam Bandt and Ellen Sandell are hosting an Emergency Community Meeting to share information on implications of the ban for people in Melbourne and to discuss what we can do in Melbourne to resist attacks on the Muslim community by Trump and his Australian supporters. You are invited to come along and find out more about how the ban will affect you, your family and the people in your community.

Now more than ever it is important to stand up for the rights of all people and to stand shoulder to shoulder with people facing discrimination.


Somali and Arabic interpreters provided. Wheelchair accessible venue.

Here's what we achieved together in 2021

As the year comes to an end I want to reflect on some of the great wins that we’ve achieved together. 


Free the Park Hotel prisoners

The treatment of the asylum seekers being held inside the Park Hotel is unfathomably cruel.After 8 years in detention, these people are now facing yet another struggle - against COVID-19.I asked the Victorian Government to advocate to release these people from this hotel prison immediately.


COLOUR IT: What are you most looking forward to when Melbourne re-opens?

We have all worked so hard and sacrificed so much to keep our community safe during this pandemic. Now it's time to re-open and revitalise our incredible city! Young people of Melbourne - what are you most looking forward to doing?
