About the organisation
ABOUT RUN FOR IT
RUN FOR IT seeks to change the problems with politics. We want to help young community leaders and people from historically marginalised communities enter the democracy and set a new agenda. We want to encourage and support energetic and bold young people to run strategic and successful campaigns to create a better kind of politics in Australia.
Climate and Environmental Justice
We fight for climate action by pursuing zero emission policies, opposing the influence of the fossil fuel industry and centring people who are most affected by climate impacts.
Everyone has the right to dignity, security and the ability to meet their needs. No one should live in poverty. We oppose policies that put public goods in private hands and we fight for universal services that give everyone a chance at a fulfilling and healthy life.
We believe that opportunities, and privileges should be fairly distributed within a society. No person should be treated differently based on their race, background, gender, sexuality, able-bodiedness or class. We will be actively anti-racist and work to dismantle systems of oppression.
We envision a world where politics accurately represents young people and takes the needs and concerns of young people seriously. Where young people face no barriers to engaging in politics and feel comfortable speaking up for what they believe in.
A type of politics where young people are inspired by their peers in politics and the real concerns of young people are addressed and responded to.
