Will my daughter inspire you?

Allow me to introduce Professor Anina Rich, my baby daughter — well, at least as seen from behind.

Here is her message to go with the picture:

I’m incredibly upset and angered by Australia’s policies toward people who come to our country seeking protection. After our recent election, I’m especially troubled for the people on Nauru and Manus Island, and the people in Australia stuck in a cycle of despair due to “temporary protection” and cuts in vital support.

I might not be able to change the government, but I can support the vital organisations who are trying to change this policy.

So… I’ve decided to cut off my waist-length hair (in frustration) to raise funds for the Refugee Council of Australia, the peak body in the refugee sector (which btw, doesn’t receive a cent of funding from the government and relies completely on individuals like us to continue their important work). We need a well-resourced peak body to coordinate strategic, effective advocacy to achieve change.

Will you support me to support the Refugee Council? All you need to do is go to this page, make a donation of your choice, then click the link to share on Facebook and tag me in the description (Anina Rich).

Any donation is welcome. I will cut my hair on Saturday (‘before’ photo attached… ‘after’ photo to come!). Let’s turn our frustration into action!
