James Delivers 2019 Australia Day Address in Inverell NSW
James had the pleasure of again being appointed as an Australia Day Ambassador.
This year, he delivered the Australia Day Address in the Northern New South Wales towns of Inverell and Delungra.
In his speech James drew on his personal experience working in the field of countering violent extremism. He highlighted the vital role inclusion plays in reducing the risk of extremism in our communities.
The core of his message, was that Australia was a rare example of where both diversity and unity, often two opposing forces, are able to be married, in a way that is the envy of many other nations. But that such a mix is not to be taken for granted, requiring all of us to do our part to continue to build strong and healthy communities .
