Our Council, Our Voice, Our Choice Campaign

The Our Council, Our Voice, Our Choice campaign was developed by LGNSW to support member councils opposed to forcible amalgamation.
 
It is a 'campaign in a box', which includes pre-prepared fact sheets as well as customisable posters, web banners, media releases, protest signs, postcards, bumper stickers and a t-shirt design.
