Our Voices Movement

Founded in 2021, Voices for Lyne (V4L) is a community group focused on improving our representative democracy. Inspired by the "voices for Indi" movement we hope to invigorate interest in politics, improve our representative democracy and make a positive change to politics as usual.

We set out to listen and learn from you, the voices in Lyne. We want to strengthen connections in our community and increase pride in our electorate. We are non-partisan and wish to engage with and invite representatives from all political parties to participate in listening to Lyne.

Our principle activity is to listen and engage with the community to hear whats important to them. We will collate this data and bring it to the attention of our current and upcoming 
political representatives. 

Lets raise our voices together and give Lyne a strong voice in
parliament
