We have run an initiative last year, called Young Turks Down Under with the support of Turkey’s agency for diaspora Turks, YTB.
We tried to upskill the members of our community, and we organised some seminars with subject matter experts on political engagement.
The workshop went well, and our ranks have swollen, visibly during the last elections.
Members of our community, calling themselves the Young Turks took part in a number of political activities to support the causes of the Turkish-Australian community.
It would not have been possible without the support of YTB.
ATAA is committed to carry on and build on top of this, to build an active and resilient community who knows how to protect itself.
