Founding Assembly

Since our humble beginnings in 2013, the Queensland Community Alliance has grown progressively. We have developed our capacity to act together and build relationships across our organisations, and won victories that have addressed pressures and improved our communities in Logan, Ipswich and Brisbane. 

Now, it is time to for us to step out of the shadows, and claim our public role as organised civil society! We have shown we can achieve results in our local communities through unusual alliance of local community members.

Now is the time to take ourselves to the next level, to be publicly recognised for what we can achieve and move to the State level. The united work of our faith, union, community and ethnic organisations is rebuilding Queensland’s civil society and we need to show that we can:

  • Hold decision makers in government and the market accountable
  • Advance the common good
  • Give meaning to our democracy by helping citizens take democratic action beyond the vote
  • Provide a forum for the grassroots members of our organisations to join together and influence decision makers

 Be a part of an historic night as we establish the Alliance and the power of civil society in Queensland!

help promote the Founding Assembly to your community.

    The time is ripe for people’s voices to not only to be heard, but to be listened to. Governments across this nation rule for the privileged and powerful minority, while those who installed the politicians, we, the voters are consistently ignored. This is the time we need vision, not division, hope not hate, equality not inequality and legislation which protects our interests and that of our environment. Time to utilise the most effective tool in your shed. Your vote. And tell our politicians that we wish to live in a society, not an economy. Neoliberalism has failed. Time for a new way to govern. A Bill of Rights would be a start. ‘Those who sacrifice Liberty for security, deserve neither.’
