Uplift is a people powered community of over 220,000 people from every corner of Ireland who take action alongside each other to fight for a better Ireland, where everyone can flourish. Together we’ve won big campaigns like increasing the number of people seeking refuge Ireland welcomes, keeping our maternity hospitals public and stopping vulture funds from evicting people from their homes. As an Uplift member, you can start a campaign of your own, or join someone else in their struggle for change.

Together we campaign for

A Thriving Environment

We believe in protecting our planet and its people from harm. This means pushing for policies and practices that eliminate our dependency on fossil fuels, toxic chemicals and plastics. Together, we want to create a vision for a flourishing and healthy environment, and for all the living creatures who call this planet home.

Transparent Democracy

We believe that democracy comes from the bottom up, not the top down. Politicians should work for us, not corporate lobbyists. We work to raise our voices collectively to hold decision makers to account. Together, we campaign for a thriving and critical civil society, more transparency from our Government institutions and politicians, and for greater regulation of corporations.

Equality

We believe that everyone is equal, and we fight to make the voices of people facing oppression and discrimination heard by decision makers. Together in solidarity, we work to push for better laws and policies for people seeking asylum, people who are undocumented, people from the Traveller community, people with disabilities, the LGBTQ+ community, women and working class people across the country.

Social and Economic Justice

We believe that an equal and just society is possible, if we work together to build it. This means that we campaign for public services that serve the needs of the people, not corporate greed. Together we work for a better health system, high quality and affordable public housing and multinational corporations paying their fair share towards a healthy, happy and thriving society.

Uplift is supporting people-powered campaigning in Northern Ireland

Since Uplift started nearly 5 years ago we’ve always been committed to supporting people-powered campaigning in Northern Ireland. We are happy to share the news with you that soon we’ll have a campaigner based in Northern Ireland — and have agreed a partnership with our sister organisation in the UK called 38 Degrees to support people-powered campaigning there. At a time where the uncertainty of Brexit looms over us, building a strong people-powered campaigning community in Northern Ireland is more important than ever. . . read more

About Us

Uplift is a people powered campaigning community of over 206,000 people who take coordinated action for progressive change across Ireland.

We are a self-supporting independent organisation. We believe that when we work together towards a common goal we can create a better society.

We know that people are not apathetic but desire engagement in our democracy. People want to have a say in decisions that determine the type of society that we live in. By connecting with each other we will help to create a stronger, more powerful voice and have much broader impact.
