Find out where they stand

Email Your Candidates

No matter where we’re from, most of us are proud of our vibrant, multicultural society. But for too long, elections have been used to spread fear about refugees and divide us against each other.

We've made this page for you to easily ask all candidates standing in your electorate if they will support policies of protection, freedom, safety and humanity for refugees and people seeking asylum.

Writing to your local candidates in your own words is a powerful way to express your support.

We strongly encourage you to edit the default email to explain, in your own words, why you support policies of protection, freedom, safety and humanity for people seeking asylum and refugees.

Our election scorecard

In the lead-up to the 2022 election, the ASRC offered the three major parties the opportunity to confirm where they stand on issues that matter for refugees. Our scorecard reflects our assessment of each major party's policies against four key issues: freedom, protection, safety and humanity. You can see that below or learn more here.

We've prepared a scorecard showing where the major parties stand on issues that matter for refugees. Learn more here.
