Do something by writing to your local election candidates letting them know you care about Indigenous issues and reconciliation and want to see their party platform reflect your views.
Candidates depend on you to educate them about what issues should be considered most important. Writing an email takes a short amount of time and ensures that the people who could make decisions on your behalf know how you want to be represented.
