Claire Garton

Candidate for Moreton

Hi, I'm Claire and I’m excited to be your Greens candidate for the federal electorate of Moreton.

I’m a parent, LGBT advocate, social campaigner, and ICT professional. I’m also deeply passionate about the community my family and I have called home since 1997, being originally from Far North Queensland.

I respect and understand the privilege I have to live and work on the lands of the Jagera, Yuggera and Ugarapul people, and am committed to working towards reparation and redress for First Nations people, enabling truth telling and healing.

We all deserve what we need to live our best life possible, and I believe we should ALL have the same opportunities and access to services, no matter our background or circumstances.

As a transwoman, I’m passionate about recognition and equity for anyone marginalised. I’m also an ardent advocate for refugees seeking asylum from places of violence and fear, as well as those less fortunate or experiencing hardship.

I'm standing to be your MP because I want to represent people like us, who are fed up with the current state of politics. We want our community voices heard loudly where it matters most, and are tired of governments putting the interests of big business, and their corporate donors ahead of people and community.

With smart, evidence-based policies across all sectors, the Greens easily stand out from the two old parties with a credible and compelling plan to tackle economic inequality, as well as the climate crisis. We refuse corporate donations which means I’ll always put your interests first.

Join me and let’s work together to fight for our future right here in Moreton, and all across Australia.

Together, we’re unstoppable.
