Catholic Alliance for People Seeking Asylum

(CAPSA)


The Catholic Alliance for People Seeking Asylum (CAPSA) has been formed to turns hearts and minds to compassion. We dream of an Australia that welcomes and respects people seeking asylum. By building on the groundswell of support and linking Catholic from across Australia, we hope to create a collective Catholic voice for change. Together, we will advocate for policy changes to better uphold the dignity and rights of each person seeking asylum.

CAPSA was formed out of a project partnership between Jesuit Social Services and Cabrini Health.
