URGENT

The Albanese Labor Government is rushing through legislation that may impact on vulnerable individuals, including the risk of returning them to danger.

Lobby, Write/Email to your Senator to express your concerns NOW.

The bill has already passed the House of Representatives, and the Senate inquiry reported back on May 7. Justice for Refugees sent a submission.  Please Read

NOW the bill will go back to the Senate on June 24 so we urgently need your help.

If this bill gets through the Senate and becomes law, it could lead to refugees being banned entry to Australia or forced to return to countries where they face persecution or even death.
