It’s the first day of advent, and we are making this festive season the kindest yet!
Today’s task – have a look at your MP or MSP’s voting record here. How welcoming are they to refugees?
We don’t want to be the stingy innkeepers turning away vulnerable people. We are not full. There is room at the inn.
If your representative isn’t showing compassion to refugees, write and tell them that you’re unhappy with that.
If they are showing proper kindness and compassion toward the vulnerable, send them a card and let them know you think they are doing the right thing. Contrary to available evidence, MPs are people too. They deserve to know when they are getting it right.
You can find you MPs contact details here.
