Each of us have a choice to make. We can sit at home alone, shouting at the TV about our wounded world. Or we can join together to heal it.

GetUp is ramping up a national movement of local Action Groups, to fight for a more fair, flourishing and just Australia. We need a new form of power that can challenge the self-serving corporations and right wing media with too much control over our democracy.

We are going to do the one thing they can’t - organise door to door, phone call to phone call. With people power.

Join our movement of people powered impact.

Cunningham Refugee Week Calling Party & Action Centre Training

We are a local group of volunteers who share a passion for refugee rights. Join our calling party to help make this year's Wollongong Refugee Week Rally bigger than ever!We will be calling the 300 hottest leads in GetUp Cunningham's Action Centre. We know this strategy works. One-on-one conversations between ordinary Australians have been the driving force of the most effective people-powered campaigns. All training and support materials are provided. We can promise tasty snacks, training, and the good company of like-minded people who care about refugees. Please bring your own: charged mobile phone laptop & charger headset/hands-free device (e.g. ear phones with a microphone) Not sure what Action Center is? Action Centre is how GetUp volunteer groups create events, track RSVPs and attendance, access volunteer contact info and reach out to fellow GetUp members to grow attendance at events and make an impact!The GetUp members in our Action Centre are the most active in Cunningham electorate -  and are glad to be kept in the loop about upcoming events like this rally. These are not 'cold calls.'P.S. Please ensure your mobile phone plan has a generous call allowance if you are taking part so you are not hit with huge bill. This calling party is not part of a national campaign, and as such doesn't use GetUp's calling tool (which allowed free calls during Marriage Equality and QLD NAIF Election).

Getup North Sydney - Dickson Community Survey + Regular Meeting

Bring your mobile phone and headset, and we will have a quick training session before we start.Having personal conversations through phone calls is a core tactic of the GetUp Action Network. By finding out what voters in Peter Dutton's electorate of Dickson care about, and the issues that matter locally, we'll be able to fine tune our election strategies for the biggest impact. We'll do an hour or so of making calls, then move into our regular meeting.  

Dickson Survey Campaign - Phone Banking

Join us for our third group phone banking action surveying the voters in Peter Dutton's seat Dickson.This project is to support the voters in Dickson to achieve better political representation at the next election - which could be in four months! As Minister for Home Affairs, Peter Dutton is one of the most powerful people in Australia.MP Peter Dutton misrepresents his local electorate in favour of his own hard-right agenda.  He abuses his power as leader of the Hard Right-wing faction of the Liberal Party to shift the Coalition, the Australian government, and all of Australia to the Right. This has serious ramifications across many issues  we care about - refugees, immigration, Aboriginal sovereignty, racism, marriage equality, human rights, undermining democracy, climate change, stop adani, economic fairness, etc. He holds his seat by a small margin of less than 2000 votes.CAMPAIGN GOAL: Make 30,000 calls to have conversations with 3,000 voters of Dickson. This will help us be able to better understand the issues they care about and what is motivating them to voteSO JOIN US IN OUR ENDEVOURS!!!! PLEASE bring a friend and phones !!And Bring a plate of food to shareand your favourite  beverage as well
