Pope Francis has described what is happening to Christians & other religious minorities in Iraq and Syria as genocide.

He is of course right. The ISIS-inspired killing and subsequent displacement of millions is the worst humanitarian crisis since World War II.

Australia’s response has been poor.

On Sunday July 26, ACL has an incredible opportunity to shine a light on this. We have been selected to run a policy forum at the 47th Australian Labor Party National Conference being held at the Melbourne Convention Centre. It is our aim to cause Australia to change its policy and greatly increase the number of refugees from this crisis. We can’t solve problem alone, but we can do much more to help.

We have an expert panel of speakers lined up. Your presence will send a powerful message about how much Christians care for those suffering.
