Keep Families Together

9,148 / 10,000 actions

All families are equal and none should be forced to live apart.

But we currently have an unfair system that makes refugee families wait for years on end to reunite. Sometimes they are separated for years. Sometimes they never see their mothers, fathers, brothers or sisters again.

Our Government expects these Australians to pay as much as $47,000 to reunite with one family member. Even if they can raise that kind of money — and many cannot — the waiting period is up to 30 years.

We know there are politicians who care about family who can change these rules that keep thousands of loving families apart. All they need to do is stand up to their colleagues who lack the same care and humanity, and demand a fair go for all families.

Join us and call on the Government to cut the red tape and keep #familiestogether.
