Writing Guide


Address them as “Dear MP not found”, or “Dear MP not found”

Introduce yourself and say where you live, something about your family, community, or church/mosque/temple etc. 

Say that you are writing about the draft Anti-Discrimination bill.


Point out that:

  • It prevents churches and faith based schools from requiring their employees to believe and live out their faith.
  • It requires any selection of staff based on faith to be “reasonable”. This means that judges will have the ability to decide what is “reasonable” for faiths to believe and say.
  • Sexuality is completely excluded which means that a church cannot require their staff to live out their faith in their sexuality, regardless of whether it is “reasonable”.
  • The law allows politicians to require their employees to hold the same political beliefs, so faith groups should be able to do the same.

Your request

Ask the MP for a response – will they oppose this legislation unless it is fixed?


Thank the MP for their attention and their service to the electorate.

Ensure you include your name and address. This is so the MP’s staff can confirm that you are a member of their electorate. Letters without an address are often ignored
