The Centre of Multicultural Political Engagement, Literacy and Leadership (COMPELL) is dedicated to advancing multicultural Australian representation in Australian politics . We are a nonpartisan organization that collects data, conducts workshops, and holds events to encourage, educate, and assist multicultural Australians to learn about AUSPOL and how they can contribute to and participate in the political process.

We envision a world where multicultural Australians are able to participate fully in the entire spectrum of political life and leadership in Australia, regardless of their citizenship status. Because, in order to reach at least 50% multicultural representation in AUSPOL, we first need a steady stream of multicultural Australians who fully understand the political eco-system of Australia so they are able to run for office from a position of strength in the future.
