About us

We’re an independent movement of more than one million people working to build a progressive Australia and put people back into politics.

Who we are

The GetUp movement is driven by the hopes and values of everyday people.

By combining the power of one million members, movement partners, and a central team of expert strategists, we do what it takes to make an extraordinary impact.

GetUp members come from every walk of life, and are united by a shared belief in fairness, compassion, and courage. Together they set our movement’s agenda on issues they care about, from human rights and climate action to economic fairness and First Nations justice.

How we do it

We do whatever it takes to make genuine progress on issues our movement cares about.

Together with our team of experienced strategists, our members use their voice, time, and skills to take action that moves the needle online and offline.

Online actions

Simple actions that together amount to significant power: signing petitions, writing to influence key decision makers, or chipping in to help fund polling, research, or advertising.

Offline actions

Careful, strategic, and bold action in the real world: meeting local MPs, handing out How To Vote cards at polling booths, or attending rallies.

In the media

Using our powerful and respected voice in Australian politics: building greater awareness of the issues we care about, and holding decision makers accountable to the public.
