The European Citizens' Initiative underway "We are a welcoming Europe: let us help!"

The ACUP has adhered to the European Citizen Initiative "We are a welcoming Europe: let us help!" In order to achieve its processing, one million signatures of European citizens before 15 February 2019 (ideally before the end of years) are required in at least 7 member states of the European Union. For Spain, the minimum number of signatures to be reached is 40,000.

The Initiative has 3 main objectives:

- End the persecution of those citizens / organizations that want to help / decriminalize help

- Promote safe routes, among others, community sponsorship

- Guarantee effective access to justice for all victims of exploitation and abuse.
