An hour or two here and there is all you need—and training is easily done online.
You’ll receive all the materials you need, such as lanyards, brochures and the mobile app that will give you directions to your nearest neighbour who needs to hear from you.
Ask a friend to join you! Or, we can pair you up with another volunteer if you wish.
You can start your online training with a Campaign Induction Conference Call – to hear about the winning strategy.
And you’ll get all the support you need from your local campaign organiser (LCO) to assist and support you as you work with our Freedom Team to help defend marriage in whatever state you live in:
It’s time to win this!
Coalition for Marriage
Australians need to know that this is a real fight to protect freedom of speech and religion for all Australians…and for parents’ rights to say ‘NO” to radical gay sex education in our schools. Australians need to know what is at stake with this attempt to change the marriage law. It will not end with marriage.
By changing marriage law Australian's freedom of speech, religion, and conscience are under direct threat. Parent's rights to teach their children that radical gay sex and lifestyle is unhealthy, dangerous physically and mentally, and that gay pedophiles do not have a right to groom children.
Just as it is OK for children to say NO when an adult tries to groom them it is more than OK for Australians to VOTE NO and stop this rainbow political and sexual movement from undermining Australia's strong foundations.
Enough is Enough Australia. Vote NO.
The ABS has released figures today estimating that 57.5 per cent of people have returned their marriage ballot paper. This still leaves just under half the population who have not yet voted.
This is your chance to do a Brexit, a Trump, and confound the political elites by saying “we are not going to accept gender fluid ideology and gender fluid "marriage" being forced on every man, woman and child, whether they are religious of not”.
Our campaign web page explains the issues with a simple leaflet and a Q&A that gives you material you can give to your children and grandchildren. It explains how this is not about equality and how it will affect them and their friends.
Have you voted yet?
Have ALL your family members, relatives and members of your church voted?
Every vote is essential in this campaign.
The marriage ballot will decide:
All these scenarios that undermine our freedom to think, speak and act hang in the balance. The only people that can stop them happening are YOU and everyone YOU can influence.

From Marriage Coalition:
Marion, one of our Freedom Team volunteers, shares why the consequences of redefining marriage led her to take action:
“Up to now I guess I’ve been pretty complacent when it comes to getting up and volunteering to go door knocking. But this issue has really stopped me in my tracks.
“Having been out there visiting my neighbours, I’ve been amazed how many people were at first reticent and then, hearing we were ‘No’ supporters, opened up.”
It’s been such a positive experience for Marion that she says:
“I’ve visited my neighbours for at least 5 afternoons!
As Marion has found, many people don’t know the serious consequences of changing the marriage law and many have still have not returned their ballot.
It’s only when someone like you has a conversation with them about the consequences and importance of returning their ballot will they respond by returning their vote.
More volunteers are urgently needed to have those conversations that many Aussies are longing to have.
So please take the first step to find out more today:
Committ to a Campaign induction Conference Call - to hear about the winning strategy.

Thanks for considering how you can help more people open up and vote “NO”!
Time to act Australia! Rise up and protect children, defend freedom of speech, religion and conscience. Honour the blood of the ANZACS. Vote No to this dangerous attempt to remove our foundations. Enough is Enough!
"After same-sex marriage was legalised in Canada, the school curriculum changed to introduce increasingly sexually explicit LGBTIQ content to children. This program is mandatory, even in faith-based schools.
Look what happened to this Canadian dad …
Steve Tourloukis tried to have his children removed from classes which presented radical gay sex education. The school refused, denying his request on the grounds it was impractical because LGBTIQ issues were embedded throughout the curriculum, and the school considered the ability to opt-out to be a form of “bullying”. The courts also denied his request and sided with the school.
International experience shows that once same-sex marriage is legalised, radical sex education programs become compulsory in schools, with parental rights to object being denied by the schools and by the courts.
Please give today to keep getting the message out fast on TV and social media that changing the definition of marriage means millions of Australian parents will lose the freedom to say “NO” to radical gay sex education for their kids in schools.
Thank you for your support today!

It is a political movement destroying foundations, family, freedom of speech, religion, conscience and childhood. Don't let them! Enough is Enough! Time to act. Vote NO Australia!
Freedom is hard to regain once lost.
"YOU DO LOSE YOUR JOB, YOU WILL BE VILIFIED."
Cambridge barrister Paul Diamond, offers a blunt warning that Christians will be targeted if they hold to traditional beliefs on marriage and the law on marriage changes.
In the UK he says, "you do lose your job, you will suffer educational detriment, you will be vilified, for doing no more than reading a Bible verse expressing traditional views. And it’s so abusive in my experience, it's a new barbarism.”
Freedom means you should not be targeted for your religious beliefs. We should be wary of laws that enable that.

Groundbreaking conference on for teenagers and parents “Confronting the LGBT Agenda” in your schools! Nov. 18
Finally, a conference that doesn’t back down!
MassResistance: September 29, 2017
For years pro-family parents and their children across America have sought help from MassResistance and other pro-family groups about how to deal with the radical LGBT agenda being pushed relentlessly in their schools.
Kids in school must endure oppressive and psychologically intrusive programs, “gay” student clubs, teaching methods, propaganda, false “facts”, and twisted logic. It becomes a battle against activist teachers, administrators, school committee members, and even brainwashed fellow students.
For decades, we have worked on the front lines and counselled educated, and even organized parents and youth to fight back in their schools. But it’s mostly been a piecemeal effort.
Now, teenagers and their parents can get virtually the whole package in one day. The On Nov. 18 from 8:00 am to 5:30 pm, the Teens4Truth Conference will be held at the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (SWBTS) in Ft. Worth, Texas. (There will also be a reception on the evening before, Nov. 17, for early attendees, with a welcoming address and a 45-minute video.)
Let’s tell teenagers the truth … Not silence, where we pretend that the harmful trends are not swirling around us (or them). Not the state-approved propaganda about tolerance and equality for all kinds of sex, families, relationships, love or (fill in the blank). Not a “conversation” where we talk around difficult issues and scramble to avoid being called “bigots.” Just the truth.
This conference will also help equip the attendees to deal with their own churches which may be succumbing to the LBGT propaganda. (The Southern states in particular are the target of a multi-million dollar campaign by the LGBT “Human Rights Campaign” to infiltrate and subvert conservative Christian churches.)
This is the conference that the LGBT mov't fears the most
Working closely with Dr. Lopez to organize the conference is David Pickup, a licensed therapist who specializes in authenticReparative Therapy, which helps thousands of youth and adults heal the psychological wounds that cause homosexual feelings and gender dysphoria, who then experience real and lasting change. See the speech that David gave at the Texas MassResistance conference in Austin last April.
There will be special breakout groups for teens and parents. Experts on all the flashpoints in school controversy, from “born this way” to “children’s sexual rights” to “sex reassignment” and bathrooms, and much more. A few prominent Texas religious leaders are also presenting.
Some of the sessions already on the schedule:
What Does the Bible Really Say about LGBT Issues?
Answering the LGBT Agenda in Churches & Schools: A Real Education in Nature
For students: How you can set the Record Straight in Your Schools - for Students
How healing and change is possible.
Your Political & Legal Rights are Under Siege
The REAL Research and Evidence of LGBT Philosophy
For Parents: How you can be the “go to person” for your child’s questions about sexuality
For Parents: How YOU Can Speak Up and Get Involved
For Students: All Your LGBT Questions Answered
You Are Called to Act (Action Items)
The entire conference schedule is still being updated, as some speakers are being added.
The intent is to give both kids and their parents the information and ammunition they need. The speakers are specialized in this knowledge and activism, and include at least two public school teachers – for an inside view of what’s really going on.
Parents and teens will come out with an understanding of: The lies they’re being told; the psychological manipulation and intimidation that is taking place; how to fight back; overcoming your fears and importance of telling the truth; and making real change in your school and church.
For more information, and how to attend: Go to the Teens4Truth Conference website.
Homosexual "marriage" and abortion are at risk, says George Soros
George Soros has just published an article in which he laments the growth of what he calls the "conservative movement" in Latin America and elsewhere around the globe.
He's afraid of what we are accomplishing. To quote Don Quixote, "Let the dogs bark, Sancho. It’s a sign that we are on track."
Here's what Soros says:
"A dangerous concept has emerged in Latin America, one with the power to rapidly mobilize voters and give new energy to the socially conservative agenda. . . . If the false narrative of gender ideology continues to gain momentum, the hard-won rights of [the Left for abortion and gay "marriage"] could be endangered."
The article mentions some milestones that he considers worrisome, such as the social mobilization in Peru against gender indoctrination in children's school curriculum, and the marches in Mexico against so-called 'marriage' between people of the same sex.
Of course there are several responses to his article:
We are winning!
And we do it without the resources the other side has, or their ability to influence governments. What's our secret? You. You and me and the 1.7 million CitizenGOers all over the world. Ordinary people who say, "Enough!"
The key lies in active and organized civil society. We will not tolerate ideological imposition.
Thanks for making it possible!
I'll just ask you one favor: George Soros insists that "gender ideology" does not exist. Let's expose what they're teaching to children for the world to see!
Post this photo on Twitter so that everyone knows what we are talking about when we mention gender ideology. This is the insanity that they're teaching to kids in school:
At CitizenGO, we take a different view.

P.S. If Soros is worried, we're on the right track. Thank you for making it possible! Please share this information.
Radical agenda lies behind the Yes campaign.
Kevin Donnelly, Herald Sun
October 1, 2017
PARENTS should be worried that if the Yes vote wins and the Commonwealth government legislates to change the definition of marriage. Parents with school-age children should be especially concerned.
Politicians such as Labor’s Bill Shorten and Penny Wong and the Coalition’s Simon Birmingham and Christopher Pyne say “trust us, all will be well”, but nothing could be further from the truth.
Former PM John Howard is correct to be ringing the warning bell. Once marriage no longer involves a woman and a man, nothing will stop those committed to a radical, Marxist inspired LGBTQI agenda from forcing their beliefs on families and society.
In this brave new world of gender and sexual fluidity, where anyone can self-identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or intersex, those committed to a traditional view of marriage for religious or conscientious reasons will be especially at risk.
Make no mistake. If the definition of marriage is exploded it will open a Pandora’s box that will restrict and punish those who believe gender is binary and that heterosexual relationships are the norm on the basis that about 98 per cent of Australians identify as male or female. And schools, especially faith-based schools, will suffer most.
Policies of the Greens Party and the Australian Labor Party are committed to removing the current exceptions and exemptions to anti-discrimination laws that give schools control over who they employ.
The Greens Party is also committed to the Safe Schools program, the one designed by Roz Ward who argues “Marxism offers both the hope and the strategy needed to create a world where human sexuality, gender and how we relate to our bodies can blossom in extraordinary new and amazing ways”.
In Victoria, the Safe Schools program will be compulsory as of next year for all government schools and the resources available on the program’s website clearly push a radical, cultural-left gender and sexuality view.
If SSM is legalised then parents should expect that the Safe Schools program will, once again, go national and impact on all schools, religious and secular.
And what parents should understand is that those committed to forcing a cultural-left, LGBTQI agenda on schools have been active for many years.
In 1995 the Australian Association for the Teaching of English, which supports the Safe Schools program, in its journal English in Australia argued that students should be taught to recognise “the various ways in which gender categories are tied to an oppressive binary structure for organising the social and cultural practices of adolescent boys and girls”.
According to the AATE, traditional fairytales like Cinderella and plays like Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet are politically incorrect as they reinforce traditional views about being male or female.
The Australian Education Union, also supporters of the Safe Schools program, in its 2003 Policy on Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender People argues that GLBT people must be allowed to marry, that all staff must be “inserviced in homophobia and transphobia” and that the school curriculum must normalise “homosexuality and bisexuality”.
Neither the AATE nor the AEU entertain the idea that parents and others in the community might disagree with their gender and sexuality policies and that they have an obligation
to present alternative points of view.
Overseas examples where same-sex marriage has been legalised provide further evidence of the dangers of changing the marriage act.
In England, a Christian school has been criticised by inspectors for not teaching the government mandated views about gender diversity and difference. And a London Jewish primary school was threatened with closure for not teaching the “correct” view about gender fluidity and gender reassignment.
While in Canada, a Christian parent is facing court action for wanting to take his son out of sex education classes that promote same-sex marriage.

There is “a time to be silent, and a time to speak”. (Ecclesiastes 3:7). Now is the time to speak, so please speak up and defend children, truth and freedom. Craig Manners
“What the world needs most is a voice that courageously speaks the truth, not when the world is right, but a voice that speaks the truth when the world is wrong.” Fulton Sheen
True marriage offers true equality for children. Every child comes from and needs BOTH a Mum and a Dad. Every human being has dignity and deserves respect. All sorts of relationships can be respected at law without having to change marriage laws. In fact that has been the case legally for many years. The simple fact remains though that not every relationship is marriage.
