Everything from the earliest days of my life has been about sharing and equality… As Social Justice Representative, I hope to provide a voice for Regional NSW. The Armidale Central Council has a growing number of ageing, single residents, many who live on fragile rural land, have access to limited public transport, and they have few resources. Their issues need to been discussed and understood.

For me, being a Vincentian is to be the Catholic God intended me to be. To be part of the Social Justice area of the Society is a privilege.  It’s an opportunity to open my eyes to the world, to learn about the causes and effects of inequity and greed and to actively do something about it.  I can not only give out food to someone, I can work to address some of the cost of living issues that have caused that person to need to look for help in order to eat.  I can help that person both in the moment and in their future. I’d ask anyone who feels that the inequality of our country and the world is growing to join the network and find their area to work in. Change will come from us.

I strongly support Vinnies aspiration to give people in need a hand up rather than simply a hand out, simultaneously treating them with love, respect, justice, hope and joy, and while working for a just society with compassion. I’m inspired to  follow my eldest sister and her late husband into Vinnies to play a small part in an increasingly important and relevant organisation in an increasingly insular and fragmented society.
