Fantastic news – we have just received an email from Prime Minister Julia Gillard confirming she will attend one of our Make it Real rally events on Monday, April 30.
The Prime Minister will address the rally in Sydney at the Allphones Arena at Olympic Park.
We want to share the email with you. It reads:
On Monday, thousands of people from around the country will gather in capital cities to show their support for a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
I’ll be joining you at the Sydney rally because I want to make the NDIS a reality too.
You and I know the current system is letting people with disability down and it’s time for change. Monday’s rally is going to be an important one.
I’m looking forward to joining you at Sydney Olympic Park.
See you on Monday.
Our nation’s leaders are listening – so don’t miss this chance to have your voice heard.
It’s more important than ever that we hit the streets on Monday and show everyone that we will not stop until the NDIS becomes a reality.
We will see you all on Monday – and don’t forget to wear red!
