This 14 February, people across the country will celebrate romantic love in their lives. But throughout 2020, Australia has been feeling the love. People have shown so many acts of kindness in the face of tragedy.
Our country is strongest when we show support and love to one another. We know there’s no space for laws that will divide us.
- Hundreds of bales of hay have been donated to farmers in drought
- Thousands of people have offered their homes to people fleeing bush fires
- The ‘Buy from the bush’ campaign has boosted the economies of struggling drought and fire-affected communities
- Pharmacist Raj Gupta kept his pharmacy open to ensure people would have their medication
- Members of Sydney’s Muslim community drove hours to cook for bush fire affected communities
- And so much more
Australia is stronger with love. But the proposed Religious discrimination bill attempts to divide Australians, giving some a licence to discriminate against others in our hospitals, our schools and our workplaces.
#LoveisStronger than laws that aim to divide us. This valentine’s day, send an important love letter. Write to your MP telling them to fight the Religious Discrimination Bill, because there’s no place for laws that divide us.
In the lead up to Valentines Day, share a story about an act of kindness shown to you, because it doesn’t all have to be about romantic love. Send a message to our politicians that #LoveisStronger than laws like the Religious Discrimination Bill that aim to divide us.
