There has never been a more important time for us all to play our part. If you are a Monash voter, we want to hear from you. Your views, experiences and insights are important. You can fill in our survey, jump on our facebook page, contact us via the contact page and you can join us to participate. 

Getting the message out there is challenging when working with a small budget. You can help by telling (in 50 words) your fellow voter why you are supporting V4M, send a photo or just say where you live. First names and the first letter of your surname will be used on the word statement, these will be shared on the internet and newsletter. Voices is about you and the representation we collectively need in Canberra.
