Current family reunion rules place huge barriers on which family members of refugees settled in the UK are allowed to reunite within the UK. For many families who have already experienced untold horrors, this enforced separation is heartbreaking and significantly adds to suffering. On Friday 16th March 2018, MPs will vote on the Family Reunion Bill that would make vital changes needed to allow more refugee families, torn apart by war and persecution, to be reunited in safety in the UK. Help us make sure as many MPs as possible take this opportunity by turning up to parliament that day and supporting this Bill.

Join Asylum Justice to celebrate Refugee Week on Friday June 30th 6:30pm.
We're hosting a two-course dinner and a movie, all for £12.50. You are very welcome to bring your own wine and plenty of friends. The two course dinner will consist of a Kenyan inspired menu with food cooked with help from local Cardiff refugees.
The movie “Warehoused” gives an intimate look at the plight long-term refugees face worldwide, by exploring life in Dadaab, Kenya, one of the largest refugee camps in the world. We see the camp’s inner workings through one man's journey to do everything in his power to provide for his family.
