  • YAP Language for Change Workshop

    This half-day meet-up will be an opportunity for young people (30 and under) to learn how to play a key role in shifting public attitudes about the issues that affect people seeking asylum. 

    We will begin by exploring the current research about shifting attitudes, as informed by the Words that Work research. Check out this resource for more info.

    Once we have our heads across all of these tools, we'll begin taking action to shift attitudes in our own lives, whether that's through conversations with friends, Facebook posts or a meeting with an MP. 

    If you’d like to join us – RSVP through the link below! 

    Please be there at 10.15 for a 10.30 start. 

    If you can’t make it but would like to know about future events, sign up to the Youth Action Project to receive updates about upcoming opportunities available for young people!

  • Sign the petition to #BringThemHere

    GOAL: 21,765 signatures

    Take action. Call your MP to ask our government to #BringThemHere.

     

    It is clear that Manus Island and Nauru are completely unsafe for refugees and people seeking asylum.

    The people on Manus Island and Nauru must be brought to safety in our community. The evidence is clear, Australia’s cruel, off-shore detention system, is unsafe, damaging and imperils people's lives.

    As a community we cannot turn away and ignore the deplorable situation our government has created. It is time to end the system of abuse and bring people to safety in our community.

    The Australian Government has been avoiding facing the reality of its own policy’s failure. Now, we, as a community, must show them the way forward.

    #LetThemStay showed that more people than ever supported allowing people seeking asylum already in Australia to move into our communities. Now, we must prove definitively that our shared compassion extends to those on Manus Island and Nauru – and that the government must follow the public, and bring those in its abusive camps to safety in Australia.

    Take action. Sign our petition calling on our government to #BringThemHere.

    Close the camps. End the abuse. #BringThemHere
