Australia votes on 2nd July. Whoever wins the election, let’s make sure that the first thing they hear is our call for a world where all people live with dignity.
Send us your message now and we’ll deliver it after the election to whoever becomes our new Prime Minister.
“Dear Prime Minister,
I care deeply that Australia acts in solidarity with people experiencing poverty and injustice. Please ensure our nation plays its part in building a fairer world.
- Rebuild our contribution to international aid and development to 2012 levels by the end of this term of government.
- Strengthen our climate change targets, establishing a plan to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 and providing our fair share of funding to help communities affected by climate change.
- Uphold the human rights of First Australians by ensuring their partnership in decisions which affect them.
Thank you. I look forward to hearing from you.”
