Cross Benchers: Please Support An IMMEDIATE Free Vote On Marriage Equality

 Banner 1

Newly-elected cross benchers have the power to stop a plebiscite on marriage equality and secure a free vote. We could see marriage equality in weeks, not months or years.

With the uncertain election result you can be sure the Coalition is furiously calling the minor parties and independents to get their support for a minority government. 

Cross benchers could be critical for ensuring marriage equality is voted on in parliament without a costly, divisive and damaging plebiscite

Join us in calling on the minor parties and independents to negotiate a free vote as soon as parliament resumes. Cross benchers will have plenty of smarter ways to spend the $160M a plebiscite would cost. 

Opponents of marriage equality have previously been successful in negotiating delays. Now it's time for us to take the initiative!
