Please join us at 2pm on Sunday 15 May for our major election campaign event and hear from a fantastic line-up of speakers.

This is a crucial election for the ABC. Its funding has been been cut by more than $700 million since 2014. Its independence has been undermined. And the powerful Murdoch media and Institute of Public Affairs are pressing the government to sell it off.

Join us to hear from Kerry O’Brien about the issues at stake for the ABC. Find out from Michelle Rowland, the Shadow Minister for Communications, what policies Labor will implement for the ABC if it wins government.

If there’s a hung parliament, will the Greens and the Independents support the ABC? Sarah Hanson-Young, the Communications spokesperson for the Greens and Independent member for Warringah, Zali Steggal, will outline their positions. Margaret Reynolds, the national President of ABC Friends will address the event by video.

An invitation has also been sent to the Minister for Communications, Paul Fletcher.

Please join us to send a powerful message to all political candidates and parties: Australians support a strong, independent and publicly-funded ABC.

Numbers are strictly limited. To purchase your ticket (only $10!) go to https://events.humanitix.com/the-abc-deserves-better

NOTE: This is a covid-safe event. Attendees will be required to wear masks.

Thank you for your support.
