With a strong passion for social justice, Gali has been involved with social organisations since her youth, both in Israel and in Australia. This led her to undertake postgraduate studies in International and Community Development. Gali has focused her work around asylum seekers and refugees, spending 5 years within the Australian immigration detention system. There she gained a genuine and first-hand insight into the trauma and difficulties faced by asylum seekers in Australia. Gali was thrilled to accept the role of the refugee partnerships coordinator for Stand Up, as this was perfectly aligned with her values and her desire to create community awareness and social change.
