Together, let’s be a welcoming Europe!

Time For Equality is proud to be a partner of the European-wide campaign #weareawelcomingEurope. We invite you to learn about the European Citizens Initiative and to sign the petition online. 1 million signatures are needed across at least 7 Member States by 15 February 2019, 4, 500 are needed from Luxembourg.

Together, let’s be a WELCOMING Europe!

Governments are struggling to handle migration. Most of us want to help people in need because we care. Millions have stood up to help. Now we want to be heard. Let’s reclaim a Welcoming Europe! We call upon the European Commission to act:

  1. Citizens across Europe want to sponsor refugees to offer them a safe home and a new life. We want the European Commission to offer direct support to local groups that help refugees who are granted national visas.
  2. No one should be prosecuted or fined for offering humanitarian help or shelter. We want the European Commission to stop those governments that are punishing volunteers.
  3. Everyone has the right to justice. We want the European Commission to guarantee more effective ways to defend all victims of exploitation and crime across Europe and all victims of human rights abuses at our borders.

Legal basis: Articles 77(2)(d) 78(2) and 79(2) of the Treaty of the Functioning of the EU (TFEU)
