Summary of activities

The company’s long term objective is to advance Christianity by seeing Christian principles and ethics influencing the way Australia is governed, does business and relates as a community. In the short term, ACL brings a Christian perspective to the public debates of the day as they arise in the media or in debate in State and Federal parliaments. Throughout 2018-19, ACL engaged and activated our supporters and churches through the following means: • Lobbying and campaigning to raise awareness on policies that are of particular value to the Christian constituency. • Hosted several events in Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania in the lead up to their state elections, helping the Christian constituency to understand the views and positions of candidates and parties. • Speaking engagements at churches, leaders’ meetings and other community events. During the year, ACL staff engaged a wide range of issues and ran a number of political campaigns. This included: o Preserving the definition of marriage in public policy o Protecting religious freedoms o Pro-life policies that aim to stop extreme abortion laws in several states o Removing highly sexualised imagery in advertising o Stopping the implementation of euthanasia and assisted suicide o The removal of radical gender theory from being taught in classrooms o The damages of pornography – Porn as a Health Issue campaign
