Online Rally: Our Vision of a Welcoming Britain

July 9, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm

“Online Rally: Our Vision of a Welcoming Britain – by people who have lived through the hostile environment.

This government’s Nationality & Borders Bill would introduce the most destructive reforms to an already broken asylum system in a generation.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

At the rally, we’ll launch Our Vision for a Welcoming Britain, a 7-point plan for a better, more compassionate, more welcoming asylum system.

This online rally is being put together by lived experience networks; One Strong Voice, Survivors Speak OUT, Young Outspoken Survivors and Write To Life, in collaboration with and support from, Together With Refugees and Freedom from Torture.

Discussions on the day will focus on five main themes:

• Access to safety & protection

• Better decisions

• Ending detention

• Housing people seeking asylum in the community

• A new refugee integration strategy

• Helping refugees to resettle in the UK

• Reuniting refugee families

Speakers to be announced via social media this week via @ssoonline, @1strongvoice & @freedomfromtorture, so please keep an eye out for that.

We cannot walk alone, so we are inviting you to join us.”
