Engaging Policy Makers post lockdown

It was a busy morning at Western Sydney MRC as our office has just begun reopening to the staff since lockdown. We were delighted to be welcoming Mr Chris Minns, Leader of the NSW Labor Party and Mr Stephen Kamper, the Shadow Minister for Small Business, Property and Multiculturalism, for a roundtable discussion and a presentation of our recent Pulse report. Joining them was the local Liverpool city councillor Mr Nathan Hagarty, ex-chair of the Western Sydney MRC board.

CALD community connection is stronger than ever

In late July 2020, Western Sydney MRC and CORE Community Services partnered to hold their most attended Community* webinar to date attended by the CEO of Multicultural NSW Joseph La Posta. Alongside Joseph La Posta, MP Melanie Gibbons, Member for Holsworthy and Guy Zangari, Member for Fairfield). The online community forum proved yet again that opportunities to facilitate dialogue and information exchange between Government, community and grassroots organisations is a successful undertaking and valued greatly by all.
