Now that the federal election is over, Australia has a newly elected Prime Minister and Parliament, and Caritas Australia intends to make sure they know that Australians want their leaders to help builder a fairer world for all.
Soon, Caritas will be delivering the following message to the 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.
