But standing in our way are a small number of hard right politicians who are blocking change for the better. That's why this election GetUp members are taking these wreckers on – going into seats they've held safely for many years.

We're harnessing the power of persuasive conversations and cutting-edge campaign tech to connect with voters on our shared values. Together we'll change what's possible this election.

Adelaide Letter Writing Party for Climate Action

Climate change is a big and scary problem to face alone, and we’ve been coming face to face with it a lot recently. We’re seeing unprecedented drought, fire and hail storms, and it’s only February. Meanwhile, our government is burying its head in the sand. That’s why Adelaide GetUp volunteers are hosting this letter writing party. People are doing this all across the country: getting friends and family members together to write letters to their MPs, demanding greater action to address climate change.  We’ll look up our MPs, write our letters and share them with each other over some snacks! I’d love for you to join me. Because together, our voices are so much louder.  

Barton Action Groups' Meeting 28th Feb 2020

If you haven't heard of us, we are the Barton Action Group, a team of local GetUp members who share a passion for environmental justice, human rights, democracy and economic fairness.  We know that we are facing a climate crisis. We know that Origin Energy is planning to start fracking in aboriginal communities across the beautiful NT We campaigned hard to get the Medevac legislation passed, a law that meant doctors, not Dutton, made medical decisions for people offshore. Our and others efforts allowed nearly 200 people to get needed medical treatment delaying the Morrison government until it tore down the legislation in the final hours of Parliament for 2019   This meeting is an opportunity to share recent achievements, plan next steps in ongoing campaigns and discuss new campaign opportunities with a focus on reenergising existing relationships and building new relationships with  Barton and nearby communities.At the meeting you will be sharing ideas with other like-minded Getup members then chatting over byo refreshments.  Come along to our meeting at Bardwell Park on Friday 28th February at 6.30pm.
