FacebookQuaker Asylum and Refugee Network – QARN

As members of QARN we work to change the way that Asylum Seekers and Refugees are treated, to ensure that justice and compassion are the guiding principles.’

Some members of the network work directly with people seeking asylum and refugees, providing support, practical help and advocacy; others give time to networking and attend meetings of national campaigns on issues like detention or destitution; some make their main role raising awareness within their local and area meetings.

If you share our concern about injustice, and would like to take part in working towards a fairer and more compassionate system, please join us.  There is no need for prior experience.  Join our email group, receive news, listen in to what others are saying, and contribute your ideas.

Quakers can join the QARN email group – please email asking to be joined to the QARN network (we started with a different name),  and giving the name of the Local Meeting that you attend.
