It's the Greens who have driven and delivered the biggest reforms this city has ever seen – from leading the nation on climate action, to our world-class renewable energy targets, to changing the conversation on light rail.Become a volunteer
Without the Greens, Labor and the Liberals will take us back decades on climate action, gay rights and public transport. They will put the big end of town ahead of the community.
The Greens will put the community before big business, developers and pokies – and speak up for everyone who has been forgotten and ignored by the other parties.
We are the party of courage and community. But we need people like you to power our party.
And yes - public servants can volunteer too.
The Greens have driven and delivered the biggest reforms this city has ever seen – from leading the nation on climate action, to our world-class renewable energy targets, to changing the conversation on light rail.
But at this election, there is a real danger that the Liberals will take us back decades on climate action, gay rights and public transport. They will put the big end of town ahead of the community, and they have big donors with deep pockets.
We have you.
We need supporters like you to power our campaign, and help us elect more Greens at this election.
You can make your mark on this election:
- $50 buys 5 yard signs to put up in front yard,
- $75 buys 1000 fliers that we can hand out when visiting voters,
- $100 buys 200 letters we can mail to voters about our values and what we have achieved,
- $150 buys 2,500 text messages to supporters asking them to volunteer
- $200 can go towards mobile phones so neighbourhood teams can make calls from their own homes,
- $1,000 pays for Facebook advertising which reaches hundreds of thousands of voters
- $50,000 buys a direct mail to every voter in Canberra.
You can claim a tax deduction for donations to political parties to a total of $1,500. More information is here.

The people of the ACT, just like all Australians, should have the right to make choices about their own life and death. At the end of their life, citizens in the ACT should have the right to die with dignity, how and when they choose. For many people there are few choices more important.
In support of this right, the Greens want the ACT Government to take action to create a compassionate, safe and workable scheme for voluntary euthanasia.
But this cannot legally happen in the ACT due to the undemocratic and discriminatory federal Euthanasia Laws Act, commonly known as “the Andrews Bill”, which specifically prevents the ACT from making laws that would permit euthanasia.
It is time that the Australian Government repealed this undemocratic law.
If you believe that people should have the right to make a choice about euthanasia at the end of their life AND you believe that the ACT should have the power to make its own laws, please sign this petition.

To the Honourable President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled:
Your petitioners ask that the Senate note:
- the importance that many people in the Australian Capital Territory and other Australian Territories place on their right to die with dignity;
- that the ACT is subject to an undemocratic and discriminatory restriction, imposed on the ACT through a federal law called the Euthanasia Laws Act 1997, commonly known as the 'Andrews Bill';
- that the limitation discriminates against people in the ACT, who do not possess the same rights as people living in Australian states.
Your petitioners ask that the Australian Parliament:
Repeal the limitation imposed by the Euthanasia Laws Act 1997 and restore the right of the ACT and other Territories to pass laws on the issue of euthanasia.
