What we stand for

The Australian Labor Party is Australia's oldest political party. Our history is intertwined with the history of Australia’s democracy labour movement.

Labor’s passion for fairness at work, healthcare for everyone and access to quality education no matter what a person’s circumstances add up to a firm belief that we should all have the same opportunities in life. These are the values that underpin everything we do.

Following the 2019 Federal Election, Federal Labor Leader Anthony Albanese and his parliamentary colleagues have embarked on a national listening tour to hear from communities across the country.
