The ABC is worth fighting for!
We are former employees of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation who believe passionately in the need for a fearless and independent national broadcaster as a vital part of Australian democracy
ABC Alumni believes a strong public service broadcaster is essential in a healthy democracy.
We are a united group of former ABC employees mobilising their skills to help save the ABC, at a time when it is under sustained attack though funding cuts, job losses and political pressure.
We are a national organisation which provides public speakers, articles and research, and assists other like-minded groups in campaigning for a strong public service media.
We also train and mentor current ABC staff, and organise social and other events to harness our collective knowledge and experience.
