Oromo Community in Melbourne, Australia, Invites You to Vision in Action
Established in 1984 by the first Oromo pioneers who migrated to Australia as refugees under the resettlement program, the Australian Oromo Community Association in Victoria develops strong networks to support the Oromo people in Australia and in their home country. They strive to improve the human rights situation for the Oromo people by lobbying, organizing peaceful rallies and promoting awareness across the wider community. They are now planning their next annual visit to Canberra to appeal for financial support and for formal recognition of Oromia as an independent region. With rich community networks, local knowledge, a culture of managing conflicts through arbitration and unparalleled dedication and commitment, the Australian Oromo Community in Victoria employs innovative approaches to the protection of human rights of the Oromo people.
