Event description

What's the Big Deal?  A Federal Election Inquiry!

WHEN:   Monday 26 September  7.00 - 8.00pm AEST (Zoom opens at 6.55pm)

WHERE: Online via Zoom.  See Event link HERE

Federal Parliament is holding an Inquiry into the 2022 election, and they want to hear from you!

The inquiry will examine reforms to political donation laws, truth in political advertising and more.  Any member of the public can make a submission to the inquiry by Friday 7 October.

We've invited two of our favourite experts on this matter to a special Voices of Mackellar webinar:

  • Craig Reucassel (Director of the 'BIg Deal', Fight for Planet A and more); and 
  • Saffron Zomer (Australian Democracy Network)

They'll explain the issue and take you through some guaranteed simple steps to make your very own submission.

This is your chance to have your voice heard...
