Help us hire a refugee campaigner
Fighting for the freedom of refugees in detention is half of the fight, the government continues to discriminate against refugees who come by sea and treat them unjustly in the community.
Currently, there are over 30,000 refugees living in limbo, these recognised refugees have no pathway to citizenship, stuck forever renewing temporary visas with limited rights to work, study and reunite with family. That’s why we are launching a new campaign soon. Will you chip in $20 so we can hire a campaigner with a refugee background?
Despite living in our community for 8 years, over 30,000 refugees can not put down roots and rebuild their lives, from getting permanent jobs to having a home. This has a devastating effect on refugees' long-term mental health. If you come by plane to seek asylum and are found to be a refugee, you are given permanent protection and a pathway to citizenship that allows you to study, work and make this new community your new home.
We are calling for the government to end the discrimination and treat all recognised refugees equally, to be all granted permanent protection.
We know the most powerful campaigns are when we work together in solidarity with refugee activists who are directly impacted by the government’s unjust policies. Can you join us in backing this refugee-led campaign? Can you chip in $20 so we can launch together the best campaign possible?
To support this critical campaign we want to hire a refugee campaigner for six months. They will work with refugee sectors, as well as the refugee community and community activists. T
Together we can fight for permanent protection for all refugees, so they can study, work and have a place to finally call home.
