Do you want to join the growing number of Australians who want both sides of the government to cease the inhumane treatment of people seeking asylum? The #IamWithYou campaign is how you can show that you welcome refugees and want a better treatment for the people seeking protection in Australia. This World Refugee Day and in the lead up to the federal election, we’re going to flood social media with messages of support for people’s right to safety. But we’re not going to stop there. As the groundswell grows, this website will become a testament to the fact that it’s time for change, and we’re not going away until we get it.
