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.

That's why Action Group members are invited to the NSW-ACT Hive — a day of dynamic workshops and relationship-building where you'll come away with the skills, resources and energy to strengthen your Action Group, and play a formative role in the next federal election.
