We believe in a fair and just immigration system

A fairer, more efficient and more humane immigration system, with laws based on sound evidence.

No migrant or refugee is made destitute, denied fundamental rights or forced to live in fear.

Greater access to justice and greater respect for human rights, human dignity and the rule of law.

The benefits of migration are celebrated and shared, with no community left behind.

General Election 2019

This election is an opportunity to push for change to our system and for you to let your candidates know that migrants’ rights matter to you.
