Mayoral letter in support of people seeking asylum
The City of Greater Dandenong, on behalf of the Local Government Mayoral Taskforce Supporting People Seeking Asylum, is inviting Mayors across Australia to sign on to this open letter to Prime Minister Scott Morrison in order to extend critical support to people seeking asylum and refugees.
In response to the devastating impact that COVID-19 is having on people seeking asylum in our communities, the Local Government Mayoral Taskforce Supporting People Seeking Asylum and the Refugee Council of Australia have jointly prepared an open letter to the Federal Government asking that greater assistance be provided for this cohort of people.
We are now asking as many Mayors as possible to put their name down in support of the letter (please see attached), so that we can reinforce our message to the Federal Government that a safety-net and access to Medicare be immediately provided to all people seeking asylum.
Due to the urgency of the matter, we ask that you raise the matter with your Mayor as soon as possible.
Below you will find the letter. You can sign on below.
