Victorian Trades Hall Council / in Carlton, Australia

It's election week! There's never been a more important time to come along and make calls to undecided voters. We need all hands on deck.

For two months, we've been calling undecided voters whose vote can remove members of the hard-right from Parliament. People like Peter Dutton, Barnaby Joyce and Andrew Nikolic who we don't believe deserve a seat in Parliament.

Come along from 2pm on Friday to make calls to undecided voters. As always, there will be training, food and great conversation. Why not bring a friend?

This election is about changing the power in our politics. Now, more than ever, we will achieve this with people on the ground, on the phones and pitching in. Whether it's about climate change and investment in large-scale renewable energy or ensuring corporations pay their fair share of tax so that we can fund hospitals and local schools, this election is about taking the power back. Will you pitch in?

GetUp Newfarm Office / in Newfarm, Australia

It's our chance to get connected, get training and make a tangible impact on this election - let's not look back after 2 July and wished we'd done more. 

Peter Dutton isn't just the Immigration Minister responsible for Australia's inhumane offshore detention program, he's also a key figure in the hard right of the Liberal-National party - blocking progress on so many issues we care about. Let's not forget that Peter Dutton was Health Minister when the LNP cut $57 billion from our hospitals in the 2014-15 budget, and he was the architect of the GP co-payment.

Together, we've been making calls to the community in Dickson to talk about what matters to them, like investing in renewable energy, more funding for schools and hospitals, and why the Coalition has been failing the community.

GetUp will be running our persuasive training preparing member to begin effectively engaging voters about issues we will be fighting to put on the agenda this election. GetUp will give members to tools and ability to achieve real change this election. We will also be mobilising our membership in Queensland to join our election campaign through direct phone contact.

Nothing is more powerful than people in our community talking directly to each other.

Join other GetUp members for a fun and effective evening reaching out to others in your community.

Got more questions? Call GetUp Organiser Sam Mackay on 0422 105 747, or email him at samuel@getup.org.au.
