**JULY UPDATE** We did it! Thank you for your help! In the coming weeks we will update this page with information about how you can make submissions to the Law Reform Commission.
Let them know you’re with us
We know the government is seriously considering taking action on this issue, but every extra month that passes means countless more survivors have to suffer through the system the way it is now.
Spending just five or ten minutes on an email to the Premier, or placing a quick call to your local MP, can make a huge difference.
Don’t worry about all the legal talk, they want your votes, so just let them know what issues and principles you care about!
We’ve prepared a sample letter you can download and either email or post. It’s a Microsoft Word document, so you can change it if you want.
#1 - The Premier’s office,
The Honourable Annastacia Palaszczuk can be emailed at: thepremier[at]premiers.qld.gov.au
Her office phone number is (07) 3719 7000 and her postal address is PO Box 15185, CITY EAST QLD 4002
#2 - Your local MP
Your local Member is also a great person to contact. They like hearing what voters care about, because they want you to vote for them!
