Youth Group Action - February 2018


We’ve teamed up with Student Action for Refugees, Oxfam and the British Red Cross to organise an action for refugee rights and we need your help make it a success. Refugee children and families, who have been separated by war and persecution are being kept apart by strict UK family reunion rules. The government has the power to change this at the stroke of a pen – but we need to tell them this is the right thing to do.

A crucial debate on the issue will be held in Parliament on the 16 March and we need at least 100 MPs to turn up and vote.

The toolkit was written primarily for university groups and encourages them to organise a week of action during February. Youth groups are encouraged to take part at a time that suits them as we know half term might get in the way for some of you. 

Important note: Please adhere to your school or college's policy on the use of social media before sharing any photos and think before sharing on personal social media.
