Right to Refuge - Speak Out, Save Lives

Keep families together
More than half the world's refugees are children, many of them separated from their families as they flee poverty, war and persecution. But needlessly strict laws in the UK mean that many are prevented from joining their parents, brothers, sisters or children. Restrictive government rules are leaving people isolated, traumatised and alone in the UK, knowing that the people they love still face untold dangers in other countries. 
 
With your help, there is a chance to change things but we need you to take urgent action- now! 
 
A Family Reunion Bill, supported by Oxfam, is having its second reading in the UK parliament on the 16th of March. The bill recommends changes to the current immigration rules. It proposes to allow an expanded group of family members, such as parents and children under the age of 25, apply to join family members who are already refugees in the UK, 
 
In order for the bill to progress to the next stage, at least 100 MPs to turn up and vote in favour of these changes. 
 
Tweet your MP or Write your MP a letter NOW – urging MPs to turn up on 16th March and speak out for the Family Reunion Bill. 
 
Make sure your MP knows that you want them to attend this vital opportunity. Turning up and voting is a simple action they can take that could help transform the lives of those who have been torn apart from the people they love. It is the right thing to do, and a practical way to fight poverty and help people rebuild their lives so they can have safe, happy futures together.
