The ABC is worth fighting for!
We are former ABC employees and media professionals who believe passionately in the need for a fearless, well-funded national broadcaster including:
- independent news and current affairs free from commercial or government influence;
- a rich diversity of programs for all Australians including drama, comedy, indigenous, children’s, arts, science, natural history and other specialist and documentary programming.
We maintain a respectful relationship with the ABC, supporting its staff through mentoring and training and offering advice and constructive feedback.
We provide public speakers, articles and research on the role and importance of the ABC, collaborating with like-minded groups such as ABC Friends.
We need you, to help us do all of the above. Our ABC has been harmed, and we need to fight for it.
You can join ABC Alumni:
- if you have worked for the ABC as an employee or contractor; or
- if you are a media professional in any discipline who has worked on programs aired on any ABC platform.
