The Community Independents Project is a collaboration to enable communities and community Independent candidates to build participatory democracy and conduct successful election campaigns.
In 2013 Cathy McGowan was elected as a Community Independent to the federal seat of Indi. She handed the baton to Helen Haines in 2019 when Zali Steggall was also elected as the Independent member for Warringah.
What Cathy and Helen achieved in a regional seat over successive elections, and Zali Steggall in a city seat, inspired a nationwide movement.
