How to Get Involved
The CSG Free Northern Rivers campaign operates through the efforts of volunteers. There are lots of ways you can get involved and contribute to the campaign across the region.

We’re often looking for help with letterboxing, DVD duplication, film screenings, mobile food stalls, merchandise supply, assisting with research or messaging… the list goes on. There’s plenty of ways you might be able to help – no matter where your talents lie. When you join our mailing list please let us know what skills you have and what sort of activities you might like to be involved in.
-There are lots of action groups around the Northern Rivers who welcome new members. Why not get in touch with the group in your local area and find out when their next meeting will be held.
