"Why do we accept a political system where the rich and powerful get special treatment?"

Christiaan Van Vuuren

WRITE TO THE CANDIDATES WANTING YOUR VOTE

We’ve prepared a simple email template you can use to write to the people running for election to represent you in the next Parliament. 

Share the results of the national survey that finds over 95% support for fixing the issues raised in the Big Deal, and ask them what they’ll do about it if elected.   

Please take a few minutes to add some details to the email including:

  • 1-2 sentences introducing yourself
  • 1-2 sentences sharing why you care about this issue

Starting a conversation with your MP, and being clear about what you are passionate about, is a great way to do your part for democracy.

We’ve created a guide to help you request a meeting, prepare for it, and follow up.

You can’t make democracy a big deal on your own. Register below to meet other people in your electorate working for change.

Providing your email allows the Australian Democracy Network – to get in touch. The Australian Democracy Network is a non-partisan national movement of civil society organisations working together to create a healthy democracy. They created the Our Democracy campaign which calls for a system that works for us, not just for the powerful few.
