MP Look-up Tool
Why contact your State MPs?
With Voluntary Assisted Dying laws already in place in Victoria and Western Australia, there is now pressure on other States to consider their own legislation.
Use this tool to look up the contact details of your MPs in Tasmania, Queensland, South Australia and New South Wales. Let your representatives know you want them to support safe and effective voluntary assisted dying bills in your state.
Note: details for Tasmania's MPs are being updated following recent by-elections and should be available again after mid August.
Not sure what to say? No problem, we've put together an MP pack that will give you some tips.

We also have a range of resources and publications available on our Resources page.
Why contact your Federal MPs?
The ACT and Northern Territory are currently banned from considering voluntary assisted dying legislation.
Regardless of what state or territory you live in, please contact your Federal MPs to encourage them to support moves to repeal the Commonwealth Euthanasia Laws Act 1997, which prohibits the ACT and NT from debating and passing their own bills on voluntary assisted dying.
If you're in Victoria or Western Australia, you can use our tool to find your Federal MPs only.
