This seems a better day than most to mention that Peoples Coffee has stepped up to become Public Address's new coffee sponsor. And that's because, to mark World Refugee Day, the good people there are donating all proceeds from their Wellington cafe to Multi-Cultural Learning & Support Services, aka MCLaSS.
MCLaSS offers free education and support for adult refugees and migrants through beginner ESOL literacy courses, job brokering, career coaching and English skills assessment.
This also seems a good day to remind you of two of the most compelling posts to appear on Public Address. In 2006, before he had a permanent home on the masthead, David Haywood published these two first-person accounts, drawn from interviews:
Those posts predate our discussion community, but you can feel free to comment here now.
Thanks to Peoples Coffee for bringing David's amazing posts to mind. Here's to a long and beneficial relationship.
