The New South Wales state election is this Saturday and Greens upper house candidate Lynda-June Coe will likely be going up against One Nation’s Mark Latham.
The proud Wiradjuri and Badu Island woman from Erambie, Cowra, has a long history of community-led activism and is calling for an independent Treaty commission, a Truth and Justice commission, and dedicated First Nations seats in Parliament.
New South Wales is currently the only state or territory not committed to some form of Treaty process with its First Nations’.
If elected, Coe will be the first, Indigenous Greens member elected to the NSW Parliament and says it’s time to create real change and amplify the needs of community.
