Huong Truong

MP For Western Suburbs

My story is entwined with thousands of diverse communities across the Western Metro region.

As the child of Vietnamese boat people, I grew up here in the Western suburbs, among migrant communities escaping war and persecution to raise a generation of new Australians. My parents survived a journey that claimed the lives of over a million other boat people in the ‘80s and ‘90s.

I am a daughter of the West and my strong sense of social justice found a home when I joined the Greens in 2006.

My heart is in leading change through organising communities and protecting the public good for generations to come.

I have already achieved outcomes for Footscray Hospital, Sunshine High and restoring Stony creek after the disastrous West Footscray Fire. But there is still so much work to be done. 

Join me in improving public transport, reducing waste, fighting to bring integrity back into politics and creating stronger communities in the West.

Stop The West Gate Toll Road

We all want a clean and livable city. The West Gate Toll Road will entrench car and truck use for decades, contributing to pollution and congestion

Fix Footscray Hospital

Footscray Hospital is dangerously unfit for service. Resuscitations happen in the hallway because modern medical equipment cannot fit into the cubicles.
