ActionStation is a vehicle for people of all backgrounds to unite independent of party politics, special interests and the usual labels that divide us.

We act together to create what we cannot achieve on our own: a society, economy and democracy that works for all of us - everyday people and the planet we love.

Here’s how you can take action with hundreds, or thousands, of others to make this vision a reality.

Make a koha to transform our justice system

We work with JustSpeak and others to push for policies that enable a more compassionate justice system. One that prioritises prevention, restoration and rehabilitation, and an end to the over-incarceration of Māori.
