Doing Politics Differently

Voices for Monash (known as V4M) is a community organisation of active citizens who want to do politics differently. This is being achieved through community engagement in the federal electorate of Monash. Our aim is to elect a federal representative who represents our issues rather than doing party politics.

V4M is not affiliated with any political party or other organisation. It is inspired by the work of Voices groups in other electorates which promote active citizen engagement in the democratic process.

The electorate of Monash encompasses Baw Baw Shire, Bass Coast Shire, South Gippsland Shire and part of Latrobe Valley Shire. Click here to see a map of the Monash electorate. 

Join us to become an active V4M member and do politics differently to achieve better representation of our community in federal parliament! 


"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.

Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

- Margaret Mead
