Many people find that once they have met a sanctuary seeker and learned about the asylum system, there are things that they want to change. Campaigning takes many forms, depending on who you want to influence and what you’re trying to change.

Speak up for Sanctuary

This programme consists of a 1.5 hour webinar and a handbook jam-packed with information, resources and exercises.

The course covers how to:

  • Counter hostile rhetoric
  • Engage with MPs and candidates
  • Mobilise your friends, family and the wider community
  • Safely challenge misinformation
