AUSTRALIA: Support Community Sponsorship for Refugees - ONLINE EMAIL

Amnesty International, Australia, Mar. 1, 2018.

Community sponsorship – where everyday people in a community choose to contribute towards the costs of resettling a refugee – has worked in Canada for over 280,000 refugees. It can work in Australia as well.

We’re a decent country, and our communities are well-equipped to offer solutions like community sponsorship. We can harness the strength and compassion behind almost 150 self-declared refugee welcome zones across the country, that are already home to refugees with incredible stories of sacrifice, courage and contribution.
