Phone App for Families to Contact Politicians

Media Release 2 February 2015
Family First NZ has launched a phone app designed to put the power back in to the hands of families, and to help them be online political activists for family issues in NZ.

The free Have Your Say phone app enables users to communicate with Members of Parliament by email from their smartphone. Users can email their local MP (the site will even help users find their local MP simply by entering their street address), or All MP’s, or a select group of MPs (e.g. from a particular party).

There is also a website for families that don’t have access to a smartphone.

“It’s vital that our elected representatives hear the voice of families on issues that are important to them. This resource has just made the task that much easier,” says Bob McCoskrie, National Director of Family First NZ.

“The site has been updated since the 2014 Election, and will continue to be updated as politicians come and go.”

“Families often feel that politicians aren’t listening to their concerns. This app will empower families to speak up.”
