HARMONY ALLIANCE WILL AMPLIFY VOICES OF MIGRANT WOMEN
The Harmony Alliance will provide a new avenue for migrant and refugee women to present their views and policy solutions to the Australian Government.
Minister for Women, Senator the Hon Michaelia Cash, launched the Harmony Alliance on 11 October 2017.
Migrant women in Australia face a unique set of challenges. The Harmony Alliance will empower migrant women to directly influence the systems that impact on their safety, health and economic empowerment.
The Harmony Alliance is the sixth National Women’s Alliance and will be led by Migration Council Australia (MCA). The Commonwealth Government will provide $927,300 funding over three years.
