My first exposure to community organising was through my involvement with the Victorian Greens during the 2014 State Election.

I volunteered as a Neighbourhood Organiser and ran door-knocks, stalls and other events. I’ve since moved back to my hometown of Perth where I have continued working as a community organiser. I currently work as the community organiser on the Our Outback, Our Story campaign.

Our campaign aims to secure historic reforms to WA’s unfair pastoral lease laws to allow and incentivise people living on Outback stations to move into more sustainable land uses such as tourism, conservation, carbon sequestration and cultural enterprises. We are advocating for a modern Outback that protects our most special natural places, rewards those who manage their land well, and encourages new enterprises and jobs that look after the land.
