Thanks for agreeing to contact your Member of Parliament!!
We will win because of people like you getting involved all over the country.
Current physical distancing requirements mean you will not be able to physically meet your Member of Parliament, but you can still write, call, and request a phone or a Zoom meeting.
To get started, feel free to check out our lobbying guide for advice on how to make contact with your Member of Parliament about why we need to permanently increase income support and lift people out of poverty. We can never go back to $40 a day.
We also have an example e-mail for writing to politicians, that you might like to use as a guide (remember, it is always best to put things in your own words), and some suggestions for what to put in your letters.
You might also be interested in our special event for new supporters: Welcome To Raise The Rate – Online Introductory Meeting.
This is your chance to learn more about the campaign and what is coming up, hear from long-time supporters, and find out how you can take action.
Our introductory meetings take place every fortnight so there are plenty of chances for you to learn about how you can be part of the fight for a permanent raise to JobSeeker Payment, Youth Allowance, and other related payments.
