The Engaging Communities in Democracy Project is a partnership project between Eastern Community Legal Centre and Parliament of Victoria. The project is indebted to community leaders who have generously shared their knowledge, expertise and lived-experiences of accessing and participating in the parliamentary system. It is hoped that the co-design and rigorous feedback loop undertaken during the development of this Toolkit will ensure it is useful and impactful for community members, electorate officers and MPs.
The Advisory Committee is made up of representatives from the following communities and organisations; Chin Community Victoria, Bohri Dawoodi Muslim faith group, Bahai Assembly, Zorastrian faith group, Hindu faith group, Indiancare, Bounce refugee mentoring program, Chinese Health Foundation, Zomi community, Whitehorse Interfaith Network, Maroondah Interfaith Network, Manningham Interfaith Network and Boroondara Interfaith Network.
