Change the story - write to your paper
We believe that
everybody deserves a safe place to call home, and we stand for a world that
refuses to turn a blind eye to the suffering of people seeking sanctuary.
stories told about refugees in the UK media too often dehumanise people and
promote discrimination, in turn discouraging the UK Government from taking the
steps that put human dignity first.
Help us change the story.
Write to a newspaper. Respond to particular stories, or simply explain why you think refugees deserve more compassion.
