Claire O’Rourke

I first learned about organising when I was a journalist and member of the Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance. I’ve worked as workplace organiser and lead organiser in the union movement and I led online communications for the Every Australian Counts campaign for the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

I see community organising as developing leadership in people so they can use the resources they have to create the leverage they need to get what they want – together. These days I’m privileged to work with Solar Citizens, an independent, community-based campaign working with supporters and volunteers around Australia to stand up for the rights of solar owners and for sensible solar and renewable energy policy.
