Committees & Working Groups

These new working groups (WG) were established at the February State Delegates Council (SDC):

The Candidate Equity Fund Working Group

This WG requires input from at least five local groups.

By establishing a Candidate Equity Fund through which candidates experiencing socioeconomic disadvantage are eligible to claim out-of-pocket campaigning expenses and/or supplement their income during the campaigning period, it is expected that the Greens NSW can enhance our ability to field candidates who reflect the full diversity of the NSW and Australian community, thus upholding our pillars of grassroots democracy and social justice.

This Working Group will develop protocols to guide how the Campaign Equity Fund will operate
