1. Remember B is for Bob, so Vote 1 in the box marked B on the white ballot
paper to vote for Family First in the Senate.
Family First believes all people are created equal and that the lives of people in the developing world
are every bit as valuable as our own.
For example, we are committed to seeing Australia increase its aid and development program budget
to 1% of GDP.
Moreover, Family First advocates for Australia to be at the forefront of Community Aid Abroad
programs sending many, many teams of Aid workers to third world countries and setting up clinics,
farms, schools, small businesses etc. Many at Family First are involved in aid and development
projects that have at its core programs to lift people - women in particular, out of poverty through
micro-finance, vocational training, schooling, clean water projects, literacy programs and the like.
Like you we are deeply concerned for those living in poverty in the developing world and will do all
that is in our capacity to do to respond to their situation. It is likely that after the election the "balance
of power" in the Senate will be held by minor parties (including Family First) and this will place us in a
strong position to positively influence decisions on Australia's aid and development program to the
benefit of the world's poorest citizens.
Having said all that, there’s so much heat in the current debate over asylum seekers that a sensible
debate is almost impossible. We do however support measures which would deter asylum seekers
from travelling to Australia by boat.
Family First believes life is precious and is committed to healing, caring for and saving lives wherever
possible, and will support policies that protect, not harm people, whether Australians or not.
