History and use
Donated by former Canberran of the Year and Centenary Medal winner, Frederika Steen AM, this badge is part of a collection documenting the multiple human rights events and causes Frederika has been involved with over her long career as a human rights supporter and activist.
The collection highlights not only the importance of human rights issues in both a political and social sense, but also links to more recent and growing numbers of refugees and those seeking asylum as a result of global warming and climate change.
