Dewani Harahap

Candidate for Monash City Council - Blackburn Ward

Hi, I'm Dewani

As a proud Australian-Indonesian nurse and mother, raised in the vibrant community of Monash, I bring a passion for diversity, sustainability and creating a caring community. With a background in nursing and frontline experience throughout Covid, I understand the importance of community health and well-being. 

I am active in several local environmental initiatives, as well as the Indonesian community, and champion protecting our beautiful parks and green spaces. We need local climate action and better waste management. 

Having lived with the City of Monash my whole life, I am committed to ensuring that there is accountability within council decision-making and affordable housing for all. I am a proud supporter of LGBTQIA+ rights and making sure everyone is welcome and included in our community. 

Join me in shaping a brighter future for Monash, grounded in equity, resilience and sustainability. 

Your vote is powerful.
