PERN News – Send your MP a Valentine’s Day card with a twist

SHOW THE LOVE – Do you want to show your love and support to refugees this February 14th?

 

Send your MP a card with a twist this Valentines Day!

 

🧡 Call on your MP to have compassion for refugees, oppose the terrible Nationality and Borders Bill and vote in favour of two very important cross-party amendments to the Bill.

 

🧡We hope that by securing the support of House of Lords members, we could ensure that MP’s vote on these two major amendments to the bill which would be harder to challenge later on in the process. Why should refugees be discriminated against based on HOW they tried to travel to a safe place? Also the Bill claims to be a way to overhaul a broken system, but what solutions are proposed for create safe and ‘legal’ routes in the Bill? None!

 

Thank you to #togetherwithrefugees coalition for this card text template and card inspiration. Yours doesn’t have to be as elaborate as this, even a postcard would do….

 

🧡You can also share your support on social media! Why not get creative with your card and share with us on social media before sending? 🎨

 

Here’s some suggested text for your card but feel free to personalise it as you wish…
