Nobody Left Behind

We are experiencing an unprecedented global crisis that affects us all. The Morrison government has responded decisively yet it has left behind almost 1.1million temporary visa holders including hundreds of thousands of people seeking asylum and refugees. When people can’t buy food, can’t pay their rent, can’t buy critical medicines, they can’t stay safe. That puts them and their families as well as the broader community at risk. We can leave nobody behind.

We are coordinating a collaborative campaign to ensure access to Medicare, income support and visa security for people seeking asylum and refugees during COVID-19.
