On the morning of Tuesday, May 30, STAND Canada, along with Arsham Parsi of the Iranian Railroad for Queer Refugees, and New Democrat MP Jenny Kwan hosted a news conference on Parliament Hill regarding the refugee transportation loan program.
Please take two minutes to share this video or our news release with your friends and colleagues, and spread the word about the refugee transportation loan program!
Shortly after this news conference, Ms. Kwan tabled STAND’s petition to abolish the loan program in the House of Commons. Thank you to everyone that signed and shared this petition! It’s thanks to supporters like you that we received over 2,300 signatures, significantly surpassing our original goal.
As we move forward into the summer, stay tuned for STAND’s next steps as we work to abolish the transportation loans and replace them with government funding. Your support will be critical.
