  • Migrant Action Trust @ the 5th Global Assembly of the International Migrants Alliance, Bangkok, Thailand

    Migrant Action Trust was invited to be at the 5th global assembly of the International Migrants Alliance - IMA held in Bangkok, Thailand last 30 November to 3 December 2022. There were four delegates from New Zealand, us included, and we have joined in the conversations and campaigns about the struggles of our community.


    As the biggest assembly of grassroots migrant organisations worldwide, we were lucky to meet 155 migrant rights advocates from 25 countries. We have placed Migrant Action Trust at the global campaign to push forward the rights of migrants, refugees, displaced peoples, and asylum seekers.
