Welcome to Labor for Refugees, NSW!
Labor for Refugees members have been working since 2001 to seek a just and fair Labor Party policy on refugees and asylum seekers. Labor for Refugees was instrumental in the improvements to National Policy at the National Conferences of the ALP in 2004, 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2015. But there is still a lot of work to be done to develop an asylum seeker policy that is, as Anthony Albanese said, tough on border security without being weak on humanity. If you are a party member or trade unionist who wants Labor to have an unequivocally decent policy on asylum seekers and refugees, one wholly based on the Labor values of compassion, fairness, and generosity, please join us.
Many members of Labor for Refugees are also supporters and members of the Refugee Council of Australia.
