Donate to Kim Travers for Pearce
Kim Travers is the federal Labor candidate for Pearce. Over her 28 year long career as a police officer she has been a tireless advocate addressing mental health and domestic violence. Raised by her grandparents in the country town of Merredin she was taught early on that there was value in living a life that involved hard work and community. Kim is a highly decorated member of the police force, with awards including the UN Medal and National Police Overseas Service Medal and the Australian Police Medal in recognition of her dedication and service, and specifically her work on mental health response. Kim’s core belief is that the government has a responsibility to all citizens and not just the privileged. Everyone has a right to education, health care, employment and a roof over their head. This is why she has chosen to run as a Labor candidate in the seat of Pearce. After almost thirty years on the frontline assisting those in crisis she believes the way to fix the core issues causing disadvantage in our society is for her to stand up for her community and help elect a Shorten Labor Government.
Kim is being mentored by Kay Hallahan, former MP and former deputy leader of Labor in WA.
"I'm running as a candidate because I believe government has a responsibility to all citizens and not just the privileged, everyone has a right to education, health care, employment and a roof over their head. Everyone has a right to strive for a world which is free from domestic violence and substance abuse, everyone has a right to live their lives in a meaningful and purposeful way regardless of age. My life has been immersed in picking up the pieces of other people’s shattered lives and I believes it is my responsibility to do all I can to influence our future and improve our community for the future generations."
