At Defib For Life, we continue our advocacy work within community, local, state and federal governments to ensure that sooner rather than later legislative change will occur and ultimately there will be lifesaving defibrillators in every sporting club, school, workplace and public venue across Australia!
We recently sent letters to all State Parliamentarians requesting a meeting to discuss how Defib For Life would be ready to get to work with them to keep making a difference.
Defib For Life works within our communities every day to continue to advocate, educate and distribute these life saving defibrillators, to make our communities safe places to live….but we need the support of our members of parliament to create that change in legislation.
Do you know who your local member of parliament is? If so, write to them, call them up and send them an email. Its going to take many voices, so pick up the phone and join in the conversation to create change.
We have had some encouraging response from some ministers and we look forward to more. With the conversations we have had booked, we will keep you in the loop and let you know how we go.
Let us know how you went when you contacted your local Member of Parliament, we would love to hear from you.
