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.

NSW: Make a Call: A critical opportunity to fight the corporate tax cuts

With the help of Pauline Hanson and the Centre Alliance Senators, the Turnbull Government just handed away over $140 billion in public funds – most of it to high income earners. But it’s not over there. The Turnbull government wants to go one step further, and pass $80 billion in corporate tax cuts for big businesses next.  Will they succeed? That could depend on the result of the Super Saturday by-elections, where Turnbull’s tax agenda will be in the public spotlight.   So next Wednesday 18 July, we’re hitting the phones to have conversations with voters in critical by-election seats about how powerful their vote is, and to make sure they know where the parties stand.  Can you join us next Wednesday 18 July at 6PM to have conversations with voters in Longman? It’ll be a fun time with great, passionate people — just bring your phone and a headset if you have one. Hope you can make it!

Barton Calling Party to Fight Corporate Tax Cuts 18 July 2018

A critical opportunity to fight the corporate tax cutsWith the help of Pauline Hanson and the Centre Alliance Senators, the Turnbull Government just handed away over $140 billion in public funds – most of it to high income earners. But it’s not over there. The Turnbull government wants to go one step further, and pass $80 billion in corporate tax cuts for big businesses next. Will they succeed? That could depend on the result of the Super Saturday by-elections, where Turnbull’s tax agenda will be in the public spotlight. So we’re hitting the phones to have conversations with voters in the critical by-election seat of Longman about how powerful their vote is, and to make sure they know where the parties stand.  LATE CHANGEThis party is no longer calling voters in Longman, instead we will call Getup members and ask them to come to one of the next three calling parties, ie to call voters in Longman.A significant difference in a recruitment party is that you call Getup members direct so there are call costs and your mobile number is visible to the Getup member. Can you join us on Wednesday 18 July to have conversations with Getup members and tell them about three great opportunities to fight corporate tax cuts? It’ll be a fun time with great, passionate people — just bring your phone fully charged and a set of earphones/pods if you have them.BYO refreshments and snacks to share Hope you can make it!What is a calling party? Having personal conversations through phone calls is a core tactic of the GetUp Action Network. By connecting on the pivotal issues that voters in Longman care about, we'll be able to shift votes away from political parties with poor policies on issues we care about. Getup's cutting-edge calling software covers call costs (if you wish) and keeps your mobile number secure. What happens at a calling party?We’ll start the evening with an explainer and you will be given a conversation guide to use and all the technical details you’ll need. A more experienced caller will make some calls in front of you so you can get the idea and then if you feel ready you can make your own calls (you can take breaks whenever you like). There will be someone you can ask questions to at any time throughout the night. We’ll finish calls around 7:30 pm when we will have a debrief , share our individual experiences, then relax with like minded people. 

QLD: Arana Hills - Down with Dutton Calling Session

Come along to my place to join the Down with Dutton Calling Party - it's going to be great. This event is all about making survey calls to voters in the Dickson electorate. By finding out the key issues that matter locally, we’ll be able to run targeted campaigns come election time, getting of Peter Dutton’s hateful and divisive politics for good. If we can get him out at this election, we’ll be removing one of the worst proponents of the hurtful right wing agenda within our government. Now that’s something I want to fight for — will you join me? There'll be like-minded people, tea and coffee, chips and dips, and lots of other snacks.Can't wait to see you there. This event has been organised by Helen Haydon — a GetUp member in Brisbane — as part the GetUp Dickson Campaign Launch.
