Australian Youth Affairs Coalition (AYAC) welcomes the Labor Party’s
announcement to fund the national youth peak body, as part of a series of commitments to support young Australians shared by Labor’s Ms Terri Butler MP in Brisbane today.
To date, the Australian Youth Affairs Coalition has had no indication from the Morrison Government about a Minister for Young People, a funded national peak or a plan for young people. The Greens gave early support for all three election asks from the youth peak.
Let’s get this across the line
AYAC is calling upon everyone to contact their local candidates. Let’s make sure young people are impossible to ignore and that this election, candidates put Youth on the Agenda.
You can easily contact the candidates in your area by following the button below and filling out the form.
“Finally, young people have clear leadership from one of the major parties to bring their issues into focus. The future should be fair for young Australians. Political inaction on critical issues means that young people haven’t had a fighting chance,” said Ms Acheson, Chairperson of AYAC.
