Ric Benjamin started this petition to Mayors of urban LGAs

We are all responding to the numerous appeals for immediate assistance to the regional and remote towns that have been devastated by these horrific bushfires.  But is there more that we can do?

Yes!  If we look at the lessons learned from Victoria's Black Saturday bushfires we know that it takes a decade or more for any one community, family or individual to truly get back on their feet.

As 2020 is the beginning of a new decade, let's get every Australian urban city council to commit to at least a decade long Sister City partnership with a devastated Australian regional or remote town to make sure all Australia continues to help and show empathy long after the headlines are gone. 

'Sister Cities' are a legal agreement between local councils/shires to promote friendship, co-operation and understanding by promoting economic ties, cultural and educational ties and by providing support in times of natural disaster.

So please sign this petition to show Australia and the world you care - and then start your own petition to get your local council to commit to a Sister City partnership.
