Sue is the Victorian Greens spokesperson on Education, Arts, Justice, Corrections, Police, Racing and Animal Welfare.
Sue is a passionate advocate for evidence based justice policies, greater investment in public education and the arts and the abolition of all cruel and inhumane treatment of animals in sport, recreation, entertainment, agriculture and our environment.
Sue joined the Greens in 1996 because of the Greens’ commitment to social justice, democracy, peace and ecological sustainability - putting people and the planet first.

Before entering parliament, Sue was involved in local community groups and worked for the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU), where she coordinated national occupational health and safety (OHS) campaigns including tackling stress and bullying at work, safer working hours and banning asbestos.
