They work for you

For all its faults and foibles, our democracy is a profound gift from previous generations. Yet most people don’t know the name of their representative, let alone what they do or say in their name.

We aim to help bridge this growing democratic disconnect, in the belief that there is little wrong with Parliament that a healthy mixture of transparency and public engagement won’t fix.

Have you visited OpenAustralia.org? They take the Hansard, the official Parliamentary record, and make it more accessible and easier to use for all Australians.
