Marjorie Thorpe

Federal Candidate for Gippsland

Hi, I'm Marjorie

I am a proud Gunnaikurnai woman and believe our biggest responsibility is to care for our country and the people who live here. In Gippsland, we need better access to better services like healthcare and education, and we need urgent action to tackle the climate crisis. 

I campaigned to save the Grandmother trees on Tjapurong, the land of my grandmothers, and will continue to advocate for the protection of our forests, rivers, native vegetation and animals. The health of our environment is essential for social well-being, but it is under threat. As an elder my responsibility is to protect the land and people, by participating in the community with integrity and passion. We need to do the right thing and fight climate change now, to ensure a safe future for us and our children.
