Dianne Hiles AM – Greens candidate for Sydney

I am standing for election because I believe in working to secure a cleaner environment and a fairer Australia for future generations. As a single working mother, I understand the pressures of living in Sydney. I wish to end policies that make it harder to just get by, such as putting single parents on Newstart and cuts to universities. As a long-time refugee advocate and co-founder of ChilOut, I believe we must stop putting children in detention and outsourcing our refugee obligations to our poor neighbour. This election, I am standing up for what matters.
