The Tamil Refugee Council (TRC) is the voice of Tamil refugees in Australia.
Several thousand currently face the prospect of deportation. Many have endured Australia’s regime of detention camps after fleeing Sri Lanka for their lives. If returned, they face state-based discrimination and persecution.
The TRC engages in media liaison, individual advocacy, educational work and campaigning for the rights of individuals and the refugee population as a whole.
Much of our work involves raising awareness of the particular challenges facing members of our community and campaigning to change Australian government refugee policy.
