Week 20: Small individual gestures spark important community discussions

Posted by · March 22, 2022 2:08 PM

Whether it was Grace Tame’s refusal to smile in the presence of the Prime Minister, or Dylan Alcott declaring “he loves his disability”, ordinary people like you and I have made statements that call our system to account. These actions are in stark contrast to the lack of bold and strong leadership from our Federal Government.

Week 19: Highlighting serious human rights issues

Posted by · March 22, 2022 2:06 PM

I’ve had several conversations recently in our community about the latest Human Rights Watch Annual World Report. The report highlights “serious human rights issues” that tarnish Australia’s global standing, including our climate policy and treatment of asylum seekers and refugees.

Week 17: COVID case numbers in NSW exceeding 90,000

Posted by · March 22, 2022 1:58 PM

With the most recent COVID case numbers in NSW exceeding 90,000, I suspect many in our community are caring in some way for someone who is sick, whether as a friend, family member, or a healthcare professional.

Posted by · March 22, 2022 1:56 PM

It’s hard to believe that we’re almost at the end of the year – this is my last blog post of 2021. We’re now just over three months into our campaign to get a strong, independent voice for North Sydney to Canberra, and as the year comes to a close, I’d just like to share how grateful I am to have met so many amazing people on this journey.

Congratulations to those who ran as Independents in the Council Elections last weekend. While the results in some areas are being finalised, it’s important we let those that ran on our behalf know how grateful we are to them for continuing to advocate for a true community voice in local politics. Thank you for standing.

Week 10: What on earth is going on?

Posted by · March 22, 2022 1:47 PM

Women are grossly underrepresented in the top ranks of politics, business, sport, the arts, media, academia, the trades … While women don’t necessarily seek the same paths as men, we deserve access to the same opportunities and outcomes.

Week 8: What does it mean to be Australian?

Posted by · March 22, 2022 1:43 PM
