Politician Birthday Cards

In 2012 CLAN decided to send NSW, SA, VIC and Federal politicians a card for their birthday as these are the states where there are no Redress schemes. Inside the card we wrote that “Australian children in orphanages, children’s Homes and foster care did not receive a card or have their birthday celebrated…..”

We  sent 446 birthday cards to NSW, SA, VIC and Federal politicians within the 12 month period and we received 7 responses.

View a list of the politicians we sent cards to.
