Join thousands of educators, parents and students right across the country in calling for people seeking asylum to have the support they need during COVID-19. Many schools are picking up the slack left by the Federal government, who are refusing to extend JobSeeker to families seeking asylum, and for some not even providing access to Medicare.
If we can get a broad cross section of society backing in our educators, parents and students, then we know we can push the government to do better. We have seen it before with Kids Off Nauru.
We need thousands of everyday people to sign this petition in support of children and families seeking asylum.
Sign on to our public petition to call on the Federal government to ensure basic supports for people seeking asylum during COVID-19 and the subsequent economic recovery. People seeking asylum have come to Australia to seek protection. It is not safe for them to return home. Australia is their home. We need our government to ensure a basic safety net for people seeking asylum at this time.
