I am a lifelong advocate for a respectful policy for those seeking asylum in our generous and beautiful country.
Labor is developing our National Platform which sets out a humane and respectful approach to asylum seekers and refugees, focusing on their safety while they are in Australia’s care. You can read pages 159-166 of the ALP Draft National platform https://www.alp.org.au/national_platform to see where the current draft is at.
My advocacy for a humane approach means a policy that has at its core respect, dignity and safety for asylum seekers and refugees.
I’ve formed a local Refugee Community Reference Group to develop policy and consider ways to better support refugees in our community.
