Victorian First: The Greens Announce First Nations Senate Ticket
For the first time in Victorian history, a First Nations Senator is bringing an entirely Aboriginal Senate Ticket to a federal election. Greens Senator Lidia Thorpe, a Gunnai, Gunditjmara and DjabWurrung woman, will be backed by First Nations activists and community leaders.
“Everyone benefits from First Nations knowledge. It’s time to put us in the driver's seat to build a better future and safer climate for everyone in this country. As the oldest living culture in the world, we have the solutions,” said Thorpe.
