In celebration of Harmony Day, the Mornington Peninsula Human Rights Group invites you to the 2019 Human Rights Oration featuring Nyadol Nyuon, to celebrate International Human Rights Day, on Wednesday 13 March.
Nyadol Nyuon was born in a refugee camp in Ethiopia, arrived in Australia when she was 18 and is now a Melbourne-based lawyer passionate about people, the law, community advocacy and human rights, multiculturalism and refugee settlement.
