What is GetUp?

What is GetUp?

Answer

GetUp gives everyday Australians the chance to make extraordinary impact – online, across the airwaves, and in the streets.

GetUp is a powerful campaigning community. By combining the sheer power of a million members, movement partners and a central team of expert strategists, we do what it takes to get things done.

Our work is driven by our values, not party politics. GetUp is, and always has been, an independent organisation. GetUp members come from every walk of life and around a shared belief in fairness, compassion and courage. Together, we campaign on issues that our members care about in the fields of Environmental Justice, Human Rights, Economic Fairness and Democracy.

GetUp is about making change, not just making noise. Everything we do is guided by carefully crafted strategies designed to win. Sometimes that means we gather in raucous protest, other times that means partnering with policy experts to develop new solutions, or we exercise our consumer power, and everything in between.
