Support Māori representation

 

Together_macron.jpgMāori representation in local government (and everywhere else) delivers great benefits to our communities. Currently the level of representation in local government is extremely low. One way councils can begin to address this is through the establishment of Māori wards. Five councils recently decided to do so, Kaikōura, Palmerston North, Manawatu, Western Bays and Whakatāne. However due to discriminatory legislation and the work of Hobson’s Pledge the establishment of these wards in under threat.

Thankfully there are many locals working hard in these communities in support of Māori representation. Groundwork: Facilitating Change is working with ActionStation and these locals to encourage people to Vote Yes for Māori wards. If you live in one of these communities, or elsewhere in Aotearoa, you can support this. Find out more here: www.votemaori.co.nz
