TheGreens_PledgeHere is the letter from Australian Greens Spokesperson for Community Affairs Senator Rachel Siewert who took the Vote for Volunteering pledge on behalf of all 203 Australian Greens candidates. She wrote,

Thank you for your work campaigning for and supporting volunteers across Australia. The huge contribution volunteers make to our communities and society is commonly overlooked, and it deserves more recognition. The huge contribution of civil society would not be possible without volunteers… The Australian Greens pledge to work in partnership with the volunteering sector to support the work of volunteers, volunteer managers and volunteer-involving organisations in the new Parliament.
