I began my organising journey as a Campus Organiser in South Australia with the Australian Youth Climate Coalition. I moved to Queensland, and worked with the Keppel and Fitzroy Delta Alliance to organise against proposed coal ports.
For me, the distinguishing feature of community organising is durable power, wielded by many. The power built comes from the community affected, who can continue to utilise that power after a campaign is over.
I really love strategy development; it’s what gets me out of bed!
