All families are equal and none should be forced to live apart.
But we currently have an unfair system that makes refugee families wait for years on end to reunite. Sometimes they are separated for years. Sometimes they never see their mothers, fathers, brothers or sisters again.
People who have found sanctuary in Australia and followed all the rules remain separated from their families by unfair, unreasonable restrictions and red tape.
The system is broken — it takes too long, it’s too expensive, and it’s too complicated.
Join us and call on the Government to cut the red tape and keep #FamiliesTogether
HOW YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Over the next two years, we will be working with activist groups in key electorates across the country to get the message to our political leaders that we believe that families belong together.
Our plan is simple – we will build teams, host events, build community support and take this to support to our MP’s door. We will use community mobilisation to persuade our MP’s that this policy change is critical, and that their electorates care about keeping #FamiliesTogether.
We are starting our first Electorate Activist Team in Banks electorate, in South-Western Sydney. We have chosen this electorate as it is the electorate of the Federal Minister for Immigration, David Coleman, who is a critical player in achieving policy change on this issue.
If you are in the Banks electorate and interested in joining our Electorate Activist Team, please sign up here.
If you are in an electorate other than Banks, we plan to be rolling this out across the country in the not-too-distant future! You can sign up for your electorate up here, and you will be the first to know about activities in your neighbourhood!
