Take action – #EndASHNow

All of us love living in Aotearoa. We share a passion for making this country a vibrant and inclusive place.

But right now, the Government are penalising migrants based on our disability or health status.

They’re upholding ableist Acceptable Standard of Health migration rules which impose a price tag on us based on the cost of our conditions.

The ASH rules consider us a burden, instead of contributing members of our communities, workplaces and schools.

This ableism does not belong in a caring and welcoming Aotearoa.

Join us as we call on the Minister of Immigration to #EndASHNow!

Here’s why we’re calling to #EndASHNow.

Our stories in the media

Collage of media headlines showing families with disabled kids being threatened with deportation, stuck in limbo, migrant being targeted for being, to quote the headline, "too fat", etc.
The Acceptable Standard of Health is ableist, fatphobic and disrupts lives.
