FIVE reasons why you should support RISE’s New Year’s Appeal 2018

Dear Supporter,

This month RISE is launching our New Year’s Appeal for 2018. Your support will allow us to continue challenging the harmful and xenophobic refugee policies and discourses which surround eX-detainees, refugees and asylum seekers and pervade social and political spheres both locally and globally. We rely heavily on public donations to ensure that we are able to continue meeting the needs of our members, and assisting those who fall through the cracks of the system.

FIVE reasons why you should support RISE’s New Year’s Appeal

RISE projects and campaigns are entirely run and developed by eX-detainees, asylum seekers and refugees.
RISE does not accept federal or state government funding.
RISE runs 18 projects throughout the year, and so far, over 3000 eX-detainees, asylum seekers and refugees have registered as members.
We work on long term structural changes which support the freedom of refugees and their self-determination process.
We run national and international refugee rights campaigns, publications and actions without any support from philanthropists or donors.

Your donation is critical to increasing our resource capacity, and will enable our dedicated team of staff and volunteers to continue providing essential services to our communities.

Lend us your support by making a tax-deductible donation today.

Nothing About Us Without Us.
