Breakfasters: The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre Turns 20

Asylum Seeker Resource Centre CEO Kon Karapanagiotidis joins Breakfasters to reflect on 20 years of the ASRC. Says Kon, “Today’s a day to celebrate the power of compassion and decency and love.” He talks about the ASRC opening in 2001, the organisation’s growth, how people seeking asylum have been affected in lockdown, and why he remains optimistic. The ASRC’s Winter Appeal is on now and their World Refugee Day Telethon is coming up on June 20.
