ActionAid Australia


ActionAid Australia is a global women’s right organisation, working to advance the rights of women living in poverty in communities in 45 countries around the world. We work on issues such as climate justice, economic justice and women’s rights in emergencies.


Are you passionate about women’s rights and social justice? Do you want to engage and inspire your local community to take action against for global gender equality? Are you keen to learn how to campaign and organise to create change?

If yes, then come be a Community Leader within your local NSW group!

We’re building a connected, skilled, diverse and vibrant grassroots network that will stand in solidarity with the women we work with around the world. Together we can take action to address the root causes of poverty and injustice through our campaign to secure decent working conditions for women in the garment sector.

We want you to be a part of it!
