A simple postcode search in the Senators and Members section of the Australian Parliament website will tell you everything you need to know about your local Member of Parliament and state Senators.
As well as electorate office contact details, you’ll find links to personal websites and profiles, records of speeches, ministerial appointments and committee memberships. Find out if your local politician has made any speeches or been involved in any action relating to global poverty or Australian aid.
In the case that your local Member of Parliament is not a member of a Coalition party, we suggest that you contact a Liberal or National Party Senator instead. We, of course, encourage you to meet with politicians from all parties around issues of global poverty and aid throughout the year.
While it’s true that both major political parties have some work to do when it comes to meeting our international aid commitments, it is the Coalition (Liberal and National) Parties that are currently responsible for the budget. As such, TEAR's Church leaders in defence of aid Campaign will specifically seek out Coalition Members and Senators.
