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.
We’re calling on the Minister of Immigration to #EndASHNow!
