Aliir’s story, from a refugee camp in Kenya to playing AFL in Australia, is one we can all be proud of.
Our government has the choice to help more people like Aliir rebuild their lives.
Refugees want what we all want – a safe place to call home, where kids can go to school, where we can explore our interests and contribute to our community.
We need a better plan for refugees. Will you back it?
We’re a decent country. We’ve got it in us to show common sense and to solve problems.
Both sides of politics have failed to deliver a fair, safe and orderly system for refugees. The government’s current approach isn’t helping people, and the secrecy and cover-ups tell us that something is wrong.
This situation is our choice.
The truth is we can build a safe and inclusive community while welcoming those who need our help. And we benefit from the contributions new Australians make to our community.
So what are we waiting for?
