    During refugee week Bay and Basin Amnesty showed the movie Constance on The Edge and handed a letter to Shoalhaven Council to become a Refugee welcome Zone. The movie was amazing and attended by over 100 people and the council voted the following week to become a Welcome Zone. We will now follow up with practical suggestions to support and promote this initiative.
