Amnesty International New Zealand has launched an online petition supporting a new way of bringing refugees to safety in New Zealand.
The ‘I Welcome’ petition supports a community sponsorship pilot programme that is bringing 25 refugees to New Zealand over 2018/19. The initiative complements the existing government-led refugee quota programme, but communities themselves are the ones offering the support. Language lessons, help finding a home, advice on putting together a CV, babysitting, showing new Kiwis how to use the public transport system – these are just some of the ways individual people, organisations and businesses can welcome refugees and help them resettle.
The aim is to achieve 10000 signatures by the end of November to present to the Government before their evaluation of the new refugee programme in December. Read more about the pilot programme at amnestyinternational.org.nz and to sign the petition, visit iwelcome.org.nz
