There are several ways for you to volunteer your time as part of our movement for gender equity:
- EMILY's List Action Group (ELAG)
Every state and territory has a local EMILY's List Action Group – a committed group of women volunteers who fundraise for candidates and support them through state, territory and federal election campaigns.
These women join together to organise and run fund and friend raising events in their state/territory, which are always fabulous fun and great opportunities to meet new people, make new contacts and raise much-needed funds for candidates.
Each ELAG has a Convenor and other office-bearing positions. Members of ELAGs are elected or nominated to EMILY's List's National Committee.
- Help win campaigns
During Federal and State Elections, we need women volunteers who can help us support our endorsed candidates. This can be done by taking part in our Women Calling Women phonebanks or getting out in an electorate and letterboxing, doorknocking or working in a campaign office.
We also run issues-based campaigns to change legislation and policy and are growing our network of feminist activists ready to mobilise at key moments.
Campaigning is a great way to develop political skills and meet like-minded women in politics.
- Research issues important to women
Are you studying in areas related to gender, politics, philanthropy, community, union or women's organising? Need a research area to complete your internship or postgraduate requirements?
EMILY's List Australia supports women to combine their professional development with our policy interests by undertaking research consistent with our principles.
- Support our office
We are always looking for women who are interested in being a volunteer member of our National Office team in Melbourne.
There are a myriad of administrative and campaign tasks which you can help us with.
Don't forget to become a financial member
We are an organisation funded by its members so if you are not already a financial member of EMILY's List Australia, you can join the movement for gender equity online today.
