The AJP has a proud history of supporting progressive human causes, and myself a candidate for Prahran am committed to:
- Building an inclusive society with strong awareness of historical, systemic, and institutional privilege, disadvantage, and inequality
- Advancing equality of opportunity for all in educational, work, recreational, housing, and administrative settings, and restitution measures for those affected by historical injustices
- Protecting the human, political and socio-economic rights of all individuals

Our current MP, Andy Meddick has been working tirelessly in parliament to create more LGBTQIA+ safe spaces in Victoria, particularly for the youth community in areas like Geelong and Ballarat.
Personally, I’m proud to be a part of St Kilda – home to the Victorian Pride Centre; the first of its kind in Australia. I strongly support LGBTQIA+ organisations and communities and encourage more safe and accessible places to support and celebrate equality, diversity, and inclusion.
