Past Events

I want to make sure that I represent our community in the best way I can. I host and attend events all across Warringah to listen to the questions, feedback and concerns of our community.

These events can cover a broad range of topics including the economy, transport and the tunnel, climate change and healthcare. If you'd like to stay up to date with my events, sign up here.

Walking Together Workshop

This workshop is a great opportunity to become more informed about our history and reconciliation in the lead up to the Voice to Parliament Referendum on 14th of October. In the Uluru Statement from the Heart, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have called for a Voice to Parliament and issued an invitation to all Australians to walk with them for a better future.

Are you curious to find out what this means? Through the workshop, you will gain knowledge, understanding and empathy to help you make a decision when it's time to vote in the referendum. Facilitated by Nicole Laupepa and Jacqui Parker who will generously share their own experiences and help put the Uluru Statement and the Voice Referendum into the bigger context.

Don't miss out on this incredible experience.
