The Democracy Ambassador program is about social inclusion. People having a say at the election.

My job is to educate the community about how to vote correctly.

As a democracy ambassador I also work with disability groups, homeless groups and Aboriginal groups as well.

Before the election I want all the community leaders to be more active in the community and help them learn how to vote so the community voices can be heard.

In the information session I teach community about how to enrol, the three levels of government and how to vote correctly.

After the session I realised my community needs more people like me to come and speak to them.

You should book an information session with a Democracy Ambassador because it will help you to learn in a better way in your own language.

Democracy means to me: freedom.
