Sometimes it can feel despairing to look around and see where we have come to on refugee policy in Australia.
We are not alone in our outrage at how refugees are treated by our country.
We need to tell all politicians, once and for all, that we do not want policies that are predicated on cruelty and punishment.
We want a country that welcomes people seeking asylum and treats them with compassion and humanity.
For real, long-lasting change to happen, we need a coordinated and targeted plan. You can help achieve that.
We have been working to develop a ground breaking “Platform for Change” policy—it is a vision for how refugee and asylum policy in Australia can look. It is based on justice and fairness. It welcomes diversity and believes in community.
