Make homelessness and poverty our government's Number 1 priority!

Make homelessness and poverty our government's Number 1 priority!

The government's role is to act in the best interests of the people. They're elected and paid for by the people.

The people believe that addressing homelessness and poverty should be the Government's Number 1 priority.

Why is this important?

Homelessness and poverty are leading to a significant decline of quality of life, and over 4 MILLION people in Australia live BELOW the poverty line (according to 2014 statistics).

Homelessness rates in 2016 were 1 in 200.
That's 105,237 people - including nearly 18,000 children.

We will not tolerate a government that tolerates homelessness and poverty.
