Activists will come together with renewed zeal on November 15, when they will hold a public meeting with national president of Rural Australians for Refugees Marie Sellstrom.
Mrs Sellstrom will be visiting the new Griffith branch to drum up support for the asylum-seeker children in Nauruan detention centres, which is a cause she has championed in rural areas for years.
"We formed the group because we felt that Australians in rural communities believe in fair play," Mrs Sellstrom said.
"Rural Australians are very generous and are always welcoming, especially when somebody needs our support.
“We welcome newcomers to our community, and we want to help them integrate into the community and become a part of our unique Australian rural culture.”
She will be talking about the Kids off Nauru campaign, and she will hear about what the Griffith branch has managed to achieve so far.
The Griffith branch was just founded in August this year by Ray and Will Mead, who have wanted to do something to help refugees for a long time.
"For years I sat back and thought to myself, what can little people do?" Mrs Mead said.
"This is one thing we can do; we founded rural Australians for refugees so ordinary everyday people in the region can have a say as well.”
After the meet-up the group will hold a vigil on November 20 to coincide with the end of the Kids Off Nauru campaign as well as universal children's day.
