Did you know that the movement to replace Tony Abott with an independent candidate started months before Zali Steggall put up her hand to run? It started with democracy walks...
Every weekend, groups of Warringah residents would meet wearing their "Time's Up Tony" t-shirts and go for walks in high traffic areas, stopping to chat with curious passers by. It started with just two walkers at Balmoral beach and grew each weekend. Residents of Warringah started to see the Time's Up Tony t-shirts everywhere they went. It started conversations, sowed the seed that an alternative was possible and created a social norm that encouraged others to get behind the movement for change. The buzz created by these walks and the social media campaign that went with them, was what eventually encouraged Zali Steggall to come forward.
That's why every Saturday in July and August we will be organising our own democracy walks on our indigo coloured t-shirts that capture people's attention!
Democracy walks are an easy and fun way to create the buzz we need for our independent candidate to step forward.
If you haven't participated in a democracy walk before, we ask that you attend a volunteer briefing first. Otherwise, meet us on Saturday morning, grab some flyers and off you go!
Once you’ve had your briefing, you can then do your own democracy walks anywhere within the electorate any time you like - so even if you can’t manage to walk with us this Saturday, it’s worth coming for the briefing and to pick up a t-shirt.
PLEASE RSVP below - it helps with our planning and COVID safety.
