Statement by Patricia de Lille

GOOD LEADER

GOOD launches first ever completely free digital sign-up system

When we launched GOOD we committed to doing politics unusual.  

We are committed to disrupting the fatigue and disillusionment that South Africans feel about politics and politicians.

We have been encouraged by the response we have had from all parts of our country

GOOD people have stepped forward to help build a GOOD country.

We want to build a modern political movement, based on sound values, using modern technology and the digital world for our structures

However, high data costs mean that many of our people are financially excluded from the digital world.  

We discussed the digital divide, and policy solutions, at our policy conference on Sunday 20 January 2019 and we will propose our solutions when we release our policy statements next week..

In the meantime, we do not intend to allow data costs to become a barrier to participating and joining GOOD.

In addition to the option to sign up as a GOOD member, volunteer or supporter on our website (www.forgood.org.za) we have now launched a platform for GOOD people to join us using their mobile phone – smart or not – without needing access to the internet or using their data.

Using a mobile phone, supporters can now simply dial *134*20018# and follow the quick and easy prompts.

There is no membership fee to be a member of GOOD. 

ENDS.
