We CAN do better: write to your MP calling for more compassion

More than 500 people have written to their local MPs as part of our “We CAN do better” action calling for better treatment of people seeking asylum.

If you have received a response from your MP, please share it with us on Facebook or Twitter at @CAPSA_Ican.

Australia’s treatment of people seeking asylum ought to reflect our collective values of solidarity, compassion, respect for human dignity, and our desire to do good – not harm.

When we offer 12,000 Syrians safe haven, we do good and honour our values. When we send people seeking safety to an unsafe environment on Nauru and Manus Island, we do harm.

We CAN do better.

Help us to keep up the pressure.

The Catholic Alliance for People Seeking Asylum (CAPSA) calls for the government to stop putting people in harm’s way. CAPSA calls for better treatment of people in need, and policies that reflect our common values.

Join our campaign to bring people on Nauru and Manus Island to safety in Australia by asking your MP to commit to doing better.
