Hundreds of refugees from Manus Island and Nauru are now being resettled across the UsA.

We want to help them find their feet – and who better than someone who’s made the move themselves?

'Ads-Up' is a group of Aussies in the USA who are supporting these newly arrived refugees, and we need your help. You can join us by signing up below.

Refugees have told us they would greatly appreciate a friendly face to help them orient themselves, give basic advice, and connect them with their new community. They’re settled in dozens of cities across the United States, from upstate New York to rural Texas.

If you have time to get coffee with a recent arrival in your city, then please register your interest below.

We have other ways that you can help remotely as well, so wherever you are, and whatever capacity you have to help, please sign up to our mailing list!
