Yesterday the Federal Court found the Environment Minister has a duty of care to young people. We asked young people what was the 1 issue they felt strongly about, environment/climate change came in no 1. Do you agree with the judgement?@ConversationEDU theconversation.com/in-a-landmark-…
Today is National Sorry Day & we ask you to acknowledge the Stolen Generations, & in doing so, remind ourselves that historical injustice is still an ongoing source of intergenerational trauma for Aboriginal and Torres Islander families, communities, & peoples. #NationalSorryDay

Thank you @RosSpenceMP for creating this great opportunity to put the youth voice front and centre. We are supporting this initiative by interviewing a diverse group of young Victorian’s within our reach, to elevate their voice and have their say. twitter.com/RosSpenceMP/st…
This week, I updated the Victorian Parliament about work currently underway to develop a new whole of Government youth strategy. Young people need a plan for the short AND the long term. And there has never been a more important time to hear from them to help build it

So wonderful to talk to @AlisterHenskens about his passion and wish to support community connection in his electorate of #kuringgai
As we hope the safety and health of all Australians continues to improve and the easing of restrictions progresses, we understand many in our community are experiencing mixed emotions and feelings. It's okay to feel whatever you're feeling. If you need support: 13 11 14 (24/7).

Wait... what? Fining children in resi care for breaching social distancing defies common sense. 1) They'll never be able to pay a $1600 fine 2) They're children! Let's educate them, not fine them 3) They're living in group homes removed from family abc.net.au/news/2020-07-1…

We were told it was a horrible time to ask our community for financial support. But, as always, our Reach family came through to back young people when they needed it most. Thank you to everyone who donated & supported us through this hectic time. You helped raise over $200K!
This is racism. This needs to stop. We, as a collective, need to hold online trolls + social media platforms accountable.

Brilliant article on why we need to #RaiseTheAge - prosecuting grade 4 children is unfair, traumatising, ineffective & too often the consequence of systemic racism. go.shr.lc/2BQBLkj

This is very encouraging!!! It will be great to provide better service and outcomes for Australians by working collaboratively twitter.com/MartinFoleyMP/…
Just got announced that the US Open will go ahead WITHOUT wheelchair tennis.. Players weren’t consulted. I thought I did enough to qualify - 2x champion, number 1 in the world. But unfortunately I missed the only thing that mattered, being able to walk. Disgusting discrimination
