Come along to our Post-Budget Town Hall at the Australian National University in the auditorium of the RSSS Building to hear about what the 2024-25 Federal Budget means for the ACT.

We'll be joined by Sue Webeck, CEO of the Domestic Violence Crisis Service in the ACT. Sue is a LGBTIQA+ community advocate as well as a passionate violence prevention and respectful relationships educator and advocate. She has been working in the community sector and aligned violence response and primary prevention spaces for over 20 years, and sits on a number of government advisory councils.

We'll also hear from Sharon Friel, who is an Australian Research Council Laureate Fellow and Professor of Health Equity in the School of Regulation and Global Governance. She is Director of the Planetary Health Equity Hothouse and Australian Research Centre for Health Equity (ARCHE) at the Australian National University. Professor Friel will speak on the budget from an intergenerational equity perspective.

Following brief presentations from our guest speakers, I'll provide a quick breakdown of the Budget and an update on what's been happening in Parliament and in the community before taking input and questions from the floor about the issues that are important to you.

Town hall meetings are part of my commitment to doing politics differently and remaining open, accountable and accessible to our community.

Swing by from 5.15pm for a fundraising BBQ before formal proceedings begin at 6pm.

You are invited to submit your questions online via Slido here as well as from the floor on the day. 

We also live stream these events on my YouTube channel here.

Look forward to seeing you there.

I am dedicated to ensuring that these events are inclusive and safe spaces that can be attended by anyone. If there’s anything I or my team can do to ensure you are able to attend and get the most out of the experience (e.g. by having an AUSLAN interpreter available), please email [email protected]
