About V4I

Voices for Indi bridges the gap between community and politics.

Ever find yourself shying away from political discussion or thinking it distasteful to talk politics? Most community groups strive hard to be apolitical which also lessens the opportunity to talk about politics, policy and democracy – things which can affect every aspect of our lives. Voices for Indi aims to create opportunities for conversation for not just your voice to be heard but for you to hear others.

Orange Independent Candidate Identification Process

During 2018 and into early 2019, V4I is conducting a Candidate Identification Process, to enable the Orange Supporters of the Federal Electorate of Indi, to identify their next Independent Orange Candidate.

Great to hear @helenhainesindi speaking about the @voicesforindi movement as an antidote to disengagement in our democratic system. Helen describes herself as a “community independent” https://t.co/5QgDc5okGe
