Together With Refugees - take action!
Launching tomorrow (28 July) to mark the 70th anniversary since the UK signed the UN Refugee Convention. The campaign gathers pledges of support from local people to be projected on landmarks across the country, as the Nationality and Borders Bill is considered by MPs in October and December.
Seven refugees from seven decades and seven places will come together to celebrate 70 years of the UK welcoming refugees. They will tell their powerful stories and the people who welcomed them. Just as the UK did 70 years ago, the seven people taking part will sign their names to signify support for the spirit of the convention. But this time they will be signing a large orange heart – the symbol of a kinder, fairer approach to refugees.
You can also join and Share Refugee Action’s #CommitToResettlement campaign, calling on the Government to announce a target for refugee resettlement (it’s the first time in almost two decades the Government hasn’t done this)
