Oxford Student Action for Refugees

About this group

Campaigning for the rights of refugees and asylum seekers. We are currently supporting the still human still here campaign, which calls for an end to the destitution of asylum seekers many of whom are forced into destitution. We organise speaker events, fundraising band nights and encourage volunteering with local asylum charities, for example through food collections.
We have close links with the Oxford University Amnesty International group and often hold joint events and campaigns with them.

Heyup!
Hope you've all enjoyed the artic easter and aren't feeling too daunted by fast-approaching exams etc....

A few exciting things going on in Oxford soon- see below.

We probably won't be having regular meetings this term, but please get in touch if there are things to talk about, and if anyone is interested in taking over STAR next year, let me know!

Hi STARs,

Thank you to all of you who voted for Asylum Welcome in the RAG election last week- they didn't win but gave the other contenders a good run for their money (quite literally). The Oxford Foodback won, which hopefully means less wasted food and fewer hungry tummies :)

Secondly... would you like to help run STAR? I'll be fading into the finals abyss next term, so it'd be great to help on the STAR front- especially looking forward to next year! Get in touch if you might be interested and I can tell you more......

All for now, no more meetings this term but check out stuff below.
Tilly xx
