I’m a climate campaigner, working with the Australian Conservation Foundation. Previous to that, I was a community organiser working for Solar Citizens.
I have been involved in activism and social change for twenty years. During that time I have done everything from getting arrested taking direct action at blockades to organising communities to get dressed up in their Sunday finest to meet their MPs.
I’m passionate about community organising because when people come together to act to achieve a common goal they become far more powerful than they imagine they could possibly be. Ensuring that people in the community have these skills and knowledge is so important to maintaining a fair and just society. It’s also heaps of fun.
