Emailing for justice and equity

Uniting Church members are invited to join a national movement that aims to make a difference for low income and disadvantaged Australians.

Through a new national website, church members will be able to quickly and easily send their concerns about a range of issues to their local MPs and Senators with just a few clicks of a mouse.

UnitingCare National Director, Lin Hatfield Dodds, said the new website has been launched by the Australian Council of Social Service on behalf of its 300 plus member organisations.

“As a member of ACOSS, the UnitingCare network is encouraging our members to use the new website and speak directly to politicians about key issues,” she said.

“In just three easy steps you can join the ACOSS Action Network and send an e-mail to your local MP expressing your concerns about the most disadvantaged in Australia.”

ACOSS will send subscribers four newsletters a year on poverty and inequality in Australia as well as invitations to take other action on-line from time to time.

“This simple and easy to use tool means we can send a clear message to political leaders.
“Acting together, we can make a difference.”
