Donate to Nita Green for Senate (QLD)
Nita Green is a Labor candidate for the Senate (QLD) in the 2019 federal election. Nita was raised in a single parent family by her Mum, who has been a nurse for 40 years. She understood at an early age the difference that access to public education could make to her life and future. Her first job after school was a traineeship, so she knows the role that a strong skills sector plays in giving working class kids a start in the workplace. She worked in the retail and hospitality industry while studying and went on to complete a Bachelor of Creative of Arts and a Juris Doctor in Law. Nita’s working life has been focused on fighting for fairness and equality. She was admitted as a solicitor in Queensland in 2015 and worked as an Employment Lawyer at Maurice Blackburn, representing workers in sexual discrimination and unfair dismissal cases. In 2017, Nita was the Queensland Field Director for the Equality Campaign. A former chief-of-staff to Senator Murray Watt, Nita currently works for the Australian Manufacturing Workers’ Union fighting for the rights of workers across Queensland. Nita relocated to Cairns with her wife at the end of last year. If she is elected, she will base her office in Far North Queensland.
Nita is being mentored by Michelle O'Byrne, MP for Bass and deputy leader of the Labor party in Tasmania.
"I've always believed that if you have more women in Parliament, you get better policies for women. We proved that in Queensland last year with the decriminalisation of abortion. Now it's time to have more women in Federal Parliament to deliver better policies for women across the country".
