Join Us - Become a Member today

We are a political movement of everyday Australians aiming to represent and empower grassroots people and communities in Australian life, including:

  • families (the foundation of society but unrepresented by any broad, mainstream organisation)

  • small businesses and independent owners (the backbone of our economy and employment but ignored by governments)

  • consumers (the least organised and least vocal component of our economy)

  • people with disabilities, chronic and mental illnesses and their families/carers (the most invisible and vulnerable Australians)

  • the aged (the carriers of our accumulated wisdom but regarded as redundant and unproductive in our culture)

  • volunteers in communities (the glue in society but unrepresented in any of our halls of power)

  • individuals and communities who practice self-help (whose voices are rarely heard in public life)

Both Left and Right have ignored everyday people and social relationships in their obsession with the market and the state. Social relationships - not the market or the state - should be the prism through which we assess policy and determine the public good. This is common sense. This is the Australian tradition.
