Anne Porter, Volunteer Coordinator
I joined JRS in 2009. Before that, I volunteered with West London Churches Homeless Concern in London for seven years.
Our son went to a Jesuit School and I feel strongly about the inhumane and unjust policies of the Australian Government.
I have learned to be in awe of the resilience and patience of many asylum seekers and their bravery in crossing the seas to attempt to start a new life in Australia.
I feel JRS is not only helping with the practical aspects of assisting asylum seekers have a better life but also advocating tirelessly to change public perceptions of asylum seekers. I love working with the committed staff.
