Is your candidate for Wentworth attending our forum to discuss refugee and asylum policy?
Date(s) - 14/10/2018
Right now, there are close to 100 refugee children who have been held on Nauru for more than five years. Doctors are calling it a humanitarian emergency and saying the mental health of many children is deteriorating rapidly. They are warning that if these children and their families are not evacuated a child’s life could be lost.
Meanwhile, here in Australia, due to the government’s cuts to life-saving support services and income support, thousands of people are being left with no income. Families with young children, pregnant women and people aged over 60 are among those at risk of destitution and homelessness.
While the country’s attention is on Wentworth you have the chance to help these people. We’re inviting candidates for Wentworth to participate in a forum on Sunday 14th October to discuss these important issues.
Will you help us get them there and show that Wentworth stands with refugees?
