We know we have the numbers in parliament needed to win marriage equality — but first, we need a free vote. The only way our politicians will make it happen is if we make sure we are impossible to ignore.

Making headlines today: Supportive MPs are pushing for the Coalition to hold a parliamentary vote on marriage equality! But in response, opponents of equality are frantically trying to get the numbers they need to stop this.

So, let's all flood our politicians to hold a free vote on marriage equality without delay — send a strong message to your MP now.

Over the last few weeks, thousands of Australians have reached out to their MPs, attended Town Halls, and shared their stories and support for marriage equality. This is what is encouraging our MPs to act!

Now the handful of people holding us all back from enjoying marriage equality need to be flooded with messages from the people they represent — their constituents. We know this works, voters directly contacting their representatives has switched votes all around the country.

To help make some noise, we built an easy tool that sends a fax direct to your politicians' offices. Unlike an email or even petitions, a fax goes directly, visibly into the offices of our leaders — and they have to react.
