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.

SA Action Network Meeting | October 2019

This meeting is an opportunity for all of SA's action groups to come together, collaborate and share ideas. It is the first of three monthly meetings we'll be holding between October and December 2019. Our guest speaker is Dr Steven Hail, lecturer in economics at the University of Adelaide and convener of Sustainable Prosperity: Modern Money and a Green New Deal conference in Adelaide, January 2020. This conference will show how we can have both an economy based on social justice that provides meaningful jobs for everyone, AND make a fair and just transition to a 100% renewable energy system in Australia. Sustainable prosperity means that every decision we make, individually or collectively, must take into account its direct and indirect effects on people, on the planet, and on the economy. (Global Institute of Sustainable Prosperity). The meeting will also include afternoon tea, followed by preparation for our National Day of Action against fracking in the Northern Territory.
