Golriz Ghahraman: Know Your Place

View descriptionShare

Golriz Ghahraman’s memoir Know Your Place tells her powerful story of becoming the first refugee elected to New Zealand’s parliament. Since her election, the former UN lawyer and Iranian-Kiwi asylum seeker has received a barrage of hate that intensified after the Christchurch terrorist attack, impacting her life, employment and wellbeing. In conversation with Roanna Gonsalves, Golriz shares her story and reflects on how the freedom of speech debate is silencing those without power while amplifying the voices of those who already have it.
