My first taste of organising was volunteering with the Whitsunday Residents Against Dumping (WRAD) and since then I have been hooked. Uniting and activating people to protect our communities and environment feeds the soul.
After spending time volunteering with WRAD and Australian Marine Conservation Society in Airlie Beach on Reef focused campaigns I worked with the Mackay Conservation Group. In an area with a powerful mining industry influence, I helped to build and maintain a drumbeat of local opposition to the Adani Carmichael Mine.
I look forward to seeing this campaign out, stopping Adani once and for all, and making sure that Australia moves rapidly beyond coal.
