Central and Outer Leeds Green Party actively campaigns for the rights of refugees and asylum seekers and values the contributions made by migrants to our area. We recognise that there are many reasons why people are fleeing their home countries due to conflict, political instability and persecution. The process of people trying to claim asylum and be granted refugee status is needlessly complicated and bureaucratic.
Our priorities for refugees in Leeds are:
We believe it is crucial to help with positive action by organisations across the Leeds area that are working to support people who come to England looking for asylum. See the links below for more information.
We support co-ops, community campaigns and groups across Leeds working towards these aims. If you are involved in a campaign and would like to discuss working together, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
