What we do
This election, we see the community independents movement as the most strategic and impactful avenue for achieving progress in these areas.
Around the country, over 30 grassroots community groups have formed with the objective of supporting pro-climate, pro-integrity and pro-gender equality independents.
We are aiming to raise at least $5 million to help level the playing field for 10-12 high quality, values-aligned candidates.
Our support is being provided through the following activities:
1. Strategic communications to support community independents and position them as an effective, credible and desirable solution to breaking the deadlock in Australian politics.
2. Analytics + engagement to identify the best values-aligned campaigns in the most strategic electorates, and support them with the data and research they need to run effective and efficient campaigns.
3. Capacity building + tactical support to ensure community groups and their candidates have the tools, strategies, and expertise needed to win.
4. Direct funding to candidates with the best chances of success or highest strategic impact.
