The Equality Campaign have said the YES campaign for marriage equality will lead a national conversation encouraging every Australian to vote for fairness so every person in this nation is able to get married.
With the High Court ruling the Government’s proposed postal survey on marriage equality can proceed and it’s expected that survey forms will start to be posted out to over 16 million Australians from 12 September.
“We are in it to win it. We are committed to doing all in our power to ensure that the long held wish of the Australian people for marriage equality for all Australians is reflected in the results of the survey,” said Tiernan Brady, Executive Director of The Equality Campaign.
“This must be a campaign of millions of respectful conversations that unites the country. We haven’t a moment to lose and we are hitting the ground running with hundreds of thousands of supporters talking about why marriage equality matters. This is a vote about the worth, dignity and status of members of our family, friends, workmates and neighbours, and across the country people are standing up for them.
“The Campaign has released new TV and Radio advertisements calling supporters across the nation to get out and vote. We know that the Australian people support marriage equality but no one can be complacent – it is all about getting as many surveys returned as possible.”
“We call on everyone to participate and to talk to their family and friends to make sure they do too. Together, let’s get this done,” Mr Brady concluded.
