The election is ON! A Lyme Community Campaign
Action oriented, community messaging asking
election candidates, MPs and senators to support their constituents
who are affected by Lyme* disease
We’ve developed a set of resources to help you open the door to a conversation,
share your story and let your candidates, MPs and Senators know that you have Lyme* disease and you VOTE!
Take action in this 2019 Federal Election... It's easy to do and remember they work for us!
Super simple steps:
Download letter, call to action and fact sheet
Customise the letter, add your story (ask your family and friends to do this too)
Google your local MP, Senator and election candidates
print and post or email your letter
(find my electorate)
Follow up and ask for their support, share your story and
ask for a briefing – contact us
Simple instructions available online.
* The Lyme Disease Association of Australia defines 'Australian Lyme’ as illness(s) and disease(s) caused by both known and yet to be identified pathogens in ticks that result in Lyme-like symptoms in Australian patients.
It's that time again to make our vote count for Australians sick with Lyme disease. At the LDAA we have recently been inspired by Professor Marcia Langton's words
"the world is run by those who show up"
Simple yet powerful words, that is who we ALL are – those who show up. Some of us are showing up by showing perseverance in finding treatment and recovery, some are showing up by NOT giving up, some are showing up by helping others and some of us are showing up in taking action on behalf of all Australians sick with Lyme disease.
Please contact us
for assistance with the election campaign system and/or for support via a briefing to your candidates, Senators and MPs.
We're linking arms with you to make our voices AND votes count for May 18th, 2019.
'It takes a village' :-)
Yours in Green,
Sharon Whiteman | CEO (Interim)
