Take Action

#OurDemocracy Framework outlines a set of policy reforms to level the playing field so that politics is fair for everyone. But this isn’t going to change on its own – political leaders and corporate powers won’t stop doing business this way unless we stop them. 

That’s why we need to build a movement right across the country, of people who want our democracy to put people first – not corporate profits.

No politician wants to look bad in an election year, so this is the perfect time to ratchet up the pressure for stronger integrity standards for our political leaders. They work for us, and they need our votes to keep their jobs. Together we can let them know that if they want to represent us, they’ll need to lift their game.

Take our Supporter Survey

We’d like to hear what you think: what is working well for you about the #OurDemocracy campaign, and how would you like to get involved?  

Your answers will help us design a strong, community-centred campaign with a huge impact in this term of government.
