Had a tour with Keshia, co-founder of @from__day__one , a safe and welcoming space that meet the needs of mothers from pregnancy to postpartum. 

It’s a much needed, well-thought out place that has opened up right in the heart of Prahran.

From Day One is a space for play dates, mummy meet-ups, consultations, masterclasses, mother’s groups and more.

Victorians have a right to be disappointed in the government and their do-nothing budget that leaves people behind.

But there is hope. The Greens hear you and we will never stop fighting for you.

Today is IDAHOBIT - the International Day Against LGBTIQA+ Discrimination. 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️

This day is an important moment to celebrate the LGBTIQA+ community and reflect on the road ahead to achieve equality and end discrimination - but it doesn't just stop on this day - we must keep the same energy everyday of the year.

The Greens and I recognise that the fight for LGBTIQA+ equality is far from over. We will keep pushing inside and out of parliament - and continue our unwavering allyship with the community.

How would you use $2.5k? That's how much renters would have saved last year if we had a rent freeze in Victoria.

Tomorrow the Greens are bringing our bill for a rent freeze back to the Victorian Parliament. 

Let me know what $2.5k extra would mean to you 👇

The low rate of income support is keeping Victorians in poverty & making it harder for women to escape family violence. Why isn't the Victorian government publicly advocating for it to be raised above the poverty line in today's federal budget? #raisetherate

This evening the Vic Greens team had the pleasure of appointing Victoria’s newest Greens Senator Steph Hodgins-May

One of the really enjoyable things we get to do is fill casual Senate vacancies through a joint sitting of state parliament. 

Steph has been elected by Greens members to replace Senator Janet Rice

Can’t wait to see you in Canberra!

Have you seen our SAVE LIVE MUSIC posters up around the place?

I'm putting them up because live music venues are either closing or under threat.

Increasing rents, cost-of-living crisis and massive hike in insurance premiums is putting the local music scene at risk. 

We're pushing the state government to step in to underwrite venues insurance, to make sure our venues and local music survive & thrive into the future.

This year’s duck season should not be going ahead. 

Labor’s own inquiry recommended last year that the cruel practice of duck shooting end - but they ignored this. 

Around 320,000 native birds will be killed this season because of it. 

We know so many of you are horrified that this cruel “sport” has been greenlit by the Victorian Labor Government in 2024. We won’t give up - we will continue to fight alongside you until our water birds are safe.

So honoured to be a part of this incredible team, now led by the amazing Ellen Sandell MP and my co-deputy leader Sarah Mansfield MP 

We are standing up for people who are struggling to pay their rent, the mortgage or can't afford groceries.

Fundamentally what is happening is the result of a failed economic ideology that is letting rent & food price rises get out of control.

What the Greens are putting forward is a different economic vision. One where the government does step in, to stop supermarkets price gouging, to freeze rents and to make profiteering corporations pay their fair share of tax 

The upcoming budget shouldn't be full of unnecessary cuts, but one where everyone gets the help they need. 

Our Greens team is putting the needs of people who are feeling the pressure, ahead of the interests of profiteering corporations.

Victorians need more homes, not hotels. We have an opportunity this budget to make more homes available for renters by regulating short stays like Airbnb - that's what The Greens and I are pushing for.
