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.

Volunteer Info Night

GetUp has launched its most powerful vehicle for social change: a nationwide network of local Action Groups who meet regularly to work on campaigns and tactics. Every week across Australia, GetUp members are coming together locally to get organised, develop skills, and build sustained power in the community. It’s the foundation of a bold long-term plan to tip the balance of power in our society away from corporations and big money, towards everyday people. But the network needs more volunteer support to grow. Come along to the Volunteer Info Night to learn about the QLD State Support Team — a mission-critical volunteer cohort that supports the work of GetUp members across the state and liaises directly with GetUp staff. What is the State Support Team?The SST is made up of committed volunteers who meet every few weeks and work together to support the Action Groups by developing resources and best practice. If you enjoy working with other people and big picture strategy, then this is a great fit. You can read more about the role here. Interested in volunteering but can’t make it?

Vic: Melbourne East Dickson Campaign Training and Community Calling

As Minister for Home Affairs, Peter Dutton is one of the most powerful people in Australia.And after managing the immigration portfolio with unprecedented cruelty he is now engaged in a power grab — with new powers to spy on ordinary Australians and punish whistleblowers for speaking out. Dutton is a power broker within Turnbull’s government, and is dragging their policies on everything from offshore detention to climate change further to the right.His dangerous views have no place in our politics and we won’t stop until they cost him votes and and even his place in parliament.As the election heats up, Dutton remains vulnerable in his electorate of Dickson. It’s no easy task unseating a Cabinet Minister, so to beat him, we'll really have to build up our numbers and fight!Join The Melbourne East Action Group in finding out about the issues voters care about. The calls are easy and fun, and we will give you all the training you need on the day! All you need to bring is a phone and headset!
