Can my GetUp action group work on an election campaign?

Answer

GetUp is independent and strictly non-party aligned, meaning it’s important that we make decisions about how to engage with elections thoughtfully and carefully. GetUp Action Groups can only work on council, state or federal election campaigns under the GetUp banner if GetUp is officially working on that election and the group is following the central strategy.

As part of this, if a member has a GetUp t-shirt on, it’s really important not to campaign for or against any party or politician - even at a local level.
