Politician's pledge to double the quota


Please join us to show that even though this is an election year, New Zealanders aren't only focussed on ourselves - we want to do our bit for people wanting protection in New Zealand.

June 20th from noon onwards. Speakers from 12.30pm.

Background: This election we'll be asking MPs and candidates to pledge their personal support to doubling the quota. We think that if anyone running for office consults their conscience on the quota they'll find themselves in favour of doing our fair share. We're asking that the refugee issue is moved away from party politics and to the consciences of each elected representative.

On 20 June we'll launch our pledge cards and ask MPs to come out of Parliament Buildings and be among the first to offer their personal support.
