This site contains the majority of information relating to the Rock the Boat campaign. This campaign aims to address Australian societal views on refugees and asylum seekers, particularly those who arrive by boat. Due largely to sensationalist mainstream media, refugees and asylum seekers are often viewed in our society as criminals. This issue is born largely from a lack of education around the topic.
Aiming to encourage Australians to treat all people with fairness and empathy, Rock the Boat will present the facts about asylum seekers arriving by boat and hopefully encourage respectful discussion. This is a campaign that aims to change a mindset.
