Refugee Crisis: Petition to take refugees
We wish to support a request for East Devon to take 200 refugees. The petition will be addressed to East Devon Council in order to apply pressure for government to release funds to assist.
It is time we all worked together in East Devon to offer spaces in our own homes if necessary to families escaping the horrors in their war-torn countries.
Communities up and down the land are standing up to say refugees are welcome and we must do so too here in East Devon.
An online petition has been set up at https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/refugees-welcome-in-east-devon
Please communicate this to others!
