Community Organising is grassroots-led solutions to create change. I think it differs from other approaches because it is the most impactful. It’s also the only type of organising that has created any change for Aboriginal people.
I am the National Co-director of SEED. I’m passionate about a range of social justice issues facing Indigenous communities and seek change through self-determination and indigenous youth leadership. I have previously worked for Oxfam across their Indigenous programs to help young people and women engage with decision makers and advocate on behalf of their families and communities.
One thing that I bring is knowledge of how to communicate and advocate for Aboriginal communities – it’s something that I’ve learned from growing up on country, and it’s what gives me the most satisfaction in my job.
