This campaign is being conducted by Friends of Refugees, in coalition with advocacy groups and community organisations around Australia. Our members/volunteers have many decades of experience working in the refugee sector and we know that the majority of Australians are a generous, welcoming people when it comes to refugees and people seeking asylum. Yet we are constantly hearing otherwise from our policymakers. The #IamWithYou initiative is our way of letting the world know we welcome refugees and people seeking asylum, to what our national anthem describes as ‘our land of boundless plains to share’ for those ‘who’ve come across the sea’.
Let us stand together in saying #iamwithyou for people who come seeking protection to Australia.
