Australian Equality Party wants you!
Since the standing committee on electoral matters has decided to increase the number of members required to register a party from 500 to 1500 on July 1, the AEP needs your help.
In order to reach the deadline of 500 people prior to the changes in legislation, the AEP is calling on the LGBTIQ community and its allies to join them as a member.
“We’ve decided to treat this as a challenge and an opportunity,” says AEP’s convenor Jason Tuazon McCheyne.
“We’re close to 350 members which is fantastic and I really appreciate everyone’s efforts in getting us to this point. We have just over four weeks to find another 150 members. In the next few weeks we’ll be bombarding the queer press, ramping up our social media presence and asking supportive friends, family and colleagues if they’ll become a member.”
The AEP was formed in February 2014 and aims to run on a platform of human rights.
