Around the world, long-held ideas about politics, poverty, and inequality are failing. There has never been a more important moment for bold thinking, and brave ideas.
Future To Fight For is a growing call for a society that puts people first, reduces the power of corporations, and empowers government to build an economy that ensures every single person is able to live a healthy, happy and fulfilling life – no matter their postcode, their income, or the colour of their skin.
It’s a new conversation about what’s politically possible. We have the technology, resources and skills to build a society in which all our needs are met – we just need the imagination and conviction to make it happen.
Australians were among the first to secure the eight-hour working day and guarantee workers both a living and a life. Previous generations stood up to demand free education, and won. And as a nation, we built a world-class healthcare system where a doctor will see you regardless of your bank balance.
We need that kind of courage again.

Future To Fight For has developed a series of achievable, transformational policies – that put the needs of ordinary people ahead of corporate profits, and the interests of an out-of-touch political class. From universal childcare, to a universal job guarantee, to a public interest banking system, they’re radical ideas that make sense.
