It’s almost National Youth Week. Here is THE BEST thing you can do to celebrate.

Thursday, March 23, 2017 - 16:15

Young people want to be heard on many issues, from tax and justice to marriage equality and climate change. But the Australian Government has removed ways to hear from or engage with young people.

This Youth Week (31 March – 9 April) you can help fix this.  Youth Week is a chance to celebrate young people, but also to make your opinion count.

We need you to contact your Member of Parliament (MPs) TODAY and make sure young people are a part of national decisions.

Here’s how:
