Our branches are part of the Greens grassroots approach to democracy
Joining the Greens Party 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.
The Australian Greens political party is founded on four key principles:
- Ecological sustainability
- Grassroots democracy
- Social justice
- Peace and non-violence.
If you support any of these key principles, you may well be a Green supporter.
We at the Mildura Greens seek to look after our local environment first, our state of Victoria second, the continent of Australia next, and the Earth last but not least.
We at the Mildura Greens hold democratic meetings, seeking consensus on the issue before us. We have a representative on the State Council of the Victorian Greens, working to influence party policy.
We at the Mildura Greens are committed to supporting justice for all, but particularly our first nation brothers and sisters, our disadvantaged members of society, the LGBTQIA+ community, and the aged and disability sectors.
Peace and non-violence
We at the Mildura Greens strive for peace, non-violence and disarmament, locally, nationally and globally. We believe peace starts at the local level and we have procedures in place for conflict resolution.
