National Day of Action Palm Sunday

Join CAPSA for this 2024 National Day of Action Palm Sunday, to support Justice for Refugees Across Australia

Each year, Palm Sunday is celebrated around Australia as a day the community comes together to stand in solidarity with refugees and people seeking asylum, through a family-friendly event and walk in every capital city across the country. Palm Sunday is also the last Sunday before Easter and the last Sunday of Lent and marks the beginning of the Holy Week.  

As part of our continual advocacy for the fair and humane treatment of refugees and people seeking asylum, CAPSA will be attending the Walk for Justice and Peace in Melbourne this Palm Sunday 24th March. This year’s National Day of Action calls for Justice for Refugees and Permanent Protection for All Refugees. CAPSA will be meeting prior to the beginning of the formal events of the day and will be led with a prayer and reflection. 

Please join us in Melbourne or attend an event organised at your closest city!
