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.

GetUp Yard Sign For Dickson

         With the federal election just around the corner, we have a huge opportunity to move towards a more fair, flourishing, and just Australia.Together, we want to create a permanent shift in Australia’s political and electoral landscape by unseating the worst hard right blockers of progressive politics and electing champions of progressive issues.But to do that, we need to persuade people in Dickson to vote to unseat Peter Dutton and rid us of the hard right blockers.And we've got just the way - by making sure that on the drive to work, while walking the dog or dashing to the supermarket - voters in Dickson know that if they want politicians who are on their side this election, don't vote Peter Dutton. Can you help spread the word by displaying a GetUp yard sign on your fence or in your window in the lead up to the election?    We'll deliver them to your door with cable ties to help display it (and help put it up if you like!). The signs 600mmx900mm. To sign up, just fill in your details - including your full address - on this page and we'll organise the rest.

Vicky's Monday Online Calling Parties

Join us on Monday nights to call voters in target electorates! "Meaningful Mondays" are hosted by Vicky- our Victorian organiser committed to leaving the world a better place for the next generation. Monday nights are going to take the time to delve deep in conversation and find out what really matters to voters in out target electorates. Monday nights are a masterclass in persuasive conversation under Vicky's guidance. Here's how it'll work. Once you RSVP you'll be sent an email with instructions on how to join the party. We meet online, and all you need is a computer with internet and your phone. You'll be walked through how to make good calls, how to use the calling tool, and given a script to follow. If you have any questions or problems during the calls a GetUp staff member will always be on hand to help. We know that person-to-person conversations are the most effective way to change voters minds. Let's work together to kick out our most hard-right politicians this federal election!
