"Born into a poor family in the Collingwood housing commission flats, I was raised to advocate for myself and those around me. My grandmother was one of the founders of the Victorian Aboriginal Health Service.
After surviving domestic violence, I raised three kids as a single mum and went on to university to study policy. This equipped me to advocate for women’s rights, public health, environmental protection, public housing and child protection. I’ve met hardship head-on, which enables me to meet my constituents at eye level and not from a position of power looking down."
Lidia has had diverse roles in many community & First Nation groups. Our new Senator for Victoria, is the spokesperson for: First Nations, Sport & Justice.
Join the Port Phillip Greens to talk about everything in Australian politics including the current local government elections and the upcoming federal election which could possibly happen next year!
Funds raised from each ticket will buy critical materials for our Local Government election campaign. But we still need your help! This is an election like no other with physical campaigning still banned by the Victorian Government.
You can volunteer to phonebank or host a placard by contacting us at [email protected].
We look forward to seeing you on the Couch and let's keep Port Phillip Green!
Zoom details will be emailed to you before the event.
We acknowledge that events in Port Phillip take place on the land of the Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation, that sovereignty was never ceded and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
