When I started to volunteer with Mackay Conservation Group and Frontline Action on Coal in 2017 I began to see both the great results and challenges with community organising.
My deep commitment to do my bit to leave our community and world a better place for our children started my journey of learning all can about how to do effective community organising.
I currently work with Mackay Conservation Group on Yuwi country in Central Queensland, where we aim to empower our community to protect our environment, and advocate as a group for the protection and repair of our environment to be a top priority for decision makers.
Some of our current campaigns include protecting waterways, stopping Adani’s Carmichael coal mine, habitat protection, and climate change.
Other things I spend my time on include being a full time home-school mum, and a wildlife carer.
