Say no to reducing Overseas Aid

Federal foreign aid budget cut
Paul Swadling is encouraging us to write to our local member, Paul Fletcher about foreshadowed cuts to the foreign aid budget. See the paper below titled “Budget 2018 Action, Strategy and Messaging” if you would like to learn more.

As Christians, we have a responsibility to speak up for the vulnerable both at home and overseas. Whether it’s quietly in the way we humbly serve our community, or more publicly in the way we stand up and take action to hold our leaders to account.
We find ourselves at a time in our nation’s history when not only have our leaders cut our contribution to ending poverty and righting injustice to its lowest level ever, but when they are mulling over cutting it some more.
As Christians, we won’t give up on our call to do justice and love mercy.
As Australians, we won’t give up on our neighbours. We can and must do more to end poverty and build opportunity for all.
As voters, we want to show our deep concern that leaders would let another cut to aid happen on their watch.
