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.

Northern Rivers Zoom MeetUp

It's 2019 and we are getting ready to kick into one of GetUp's most ambitious election plans yet!

Mackellar Action Group Meeting

Welcome to 2019! The Mackellar Action Group is hosting our first meeting of the year Wednesday January 16th. The federal election is fast approaching, and we'll be discussing all the ways the Mackellar GetUp members can get involved in ousting Tony Abbott from the neighbouring seat of Warringah.  We'll also be getting the latest election campaign updates from GetUp HQ, as well as catching up with one another, and getting to know newcomers. It'll be a great event to kick start another year of working together for a more progressive Australia!

GetUp East Adelaide - Boothby Survey Calling Party!

  Do you want a fair, flourishing and just Australia? Nicolle Flint, the MP for Boothby in SA, is part of the hard-right faction who brought down a Prime Minister who didn’t do enough to appease them.She may be powerful in Canberra, but in her electorate of Boothby, Nicolle Flint is fighting for her political life, and runs a real risk of losing her seat at the next federal election. Ramping up our pressure now on Flint is key to reversing the hard-right's momentum.  To do that, we need thousands more people, across the country, stepping up to join the people-powered effort!But before we can craft a powerful campaign in Boothby, we need to start listening to the electorate, talking to the community to find out which issues they care about most? By finding out what matters to voters, we can have the most effective conversations with voters come election time. So, can you join us at the GetUp East Adelaide - Boothby Survey Calling Party? We'll be calling fellow GetUp members in Boothby, so these will be warm, friendly conversations. This event is about getting comfortable with having fun conversations using our amazing calling technology, plus providing feedback on the script and conversations so we can refine and build a powerful campaign over time. Full training is provided, all you need is your mobile phone (calls are free) and perhaps a headset. You'll be joined by a fabulous new team of volunteers who share a passion for pursuing environmental justice, human rights, democracy and economic fairness.RSVP on this page!
