OUR BRANCHES ARE PART OF THE GREENS GRASSROOTS APPROACH TO DEMOCRACY
Joining the Greens means having access to a local Greens branch. Based on local government areas, these hubs are vital avenues for our members to talk about politics and policy, join local campaigning, keep up to date with local issues and have direct access to Greens representatives.
Most of all, local Greens branches are a way for our members to join like-minded people, fellow Victorians who are also passionate about progressive Australian politics. Greens members are extraordinary people and by providing them with the space to foster proactive political and social change, the Greens aim to instil a long legacy of making a difference in the community.
All Victorian Greens members are automatically members of the Australian Greens. Being a part of our growing party means together, through the principles and aims of the Greens, we can stand up for what matters.
ABOUT BALLAARAT AND DISTRICT GREENS
The Ballaarat and District Greens covers the Local Government Areas of Ballarat, Hepburn, Moorabool, Pyrenees, Ararat, Northern Grampians, Southern Grampians and Horsham. Our branch is the largest branch in Regional Victoria in terms of membership, and the largest in the state in terms of area.
Our members come from a variety of backgrounds, and we are brought together by our desire to help shape a better future for our communities, our environment and our people.
Greens members can be seen throughout the community, participating in local events, advocating for social, economic, and climate justice, or volunteering on community groups and committees. The Ballaarat and District Branch support a number of elected councillors including Belinda Coates (Central Ward Councillor, City of Ballarat) and Tim Drylie (Creswick Ward Councillor and current Mayor, Hepburn Shire Council).
Our branch meets monthly, and usually via video conference. If you are interested in helping the environment, improving social justice and meeting like minded people, the Greens are for you!
