13th Friendship and Dialogue Iftar Dinner Affinity Intercultural Foundation NSW Parliament House
Our Parliamentary hosts, distinguished guests, of whom there are indeed many, friends. Thank you to Ahmet Polat and his team at Affinity Intercultural Foundation for organising this year’s Friendship & Dialogue Iftar Dinner, which once again has brought together a wonderfully diverse cross-section of the community. As a mark of true ‘affinity’, Ahmet dubs all of us his ‘cousins’. We share this evening on the traditional lands of the Gadigal people of the Eora nation and I pay respects to elders past, present and emerging, and any First Nations people sharing this wonderful evening.
