Community organising graduate profile: Jaime Yallup Farrant

Why are you passionate about Community Organising? Why is organising an important part of the solution in your community? 

Only with organised people can we defeat organised money. It sounds like a cliché, but the resources that vested interests can mobilise to continue their harmful practices are vast. It’s only through our ability to unite the community that we can begin questioning their power and rewrite our futures.

How has the Community Organising Fellowship impacted on your current work?

Having completed the Community Organising Fellowship I now have a clear path to follow in bringing about a safe climate future. It’s not going to be easy and it’s not going to happen over night, however at least now I know what success will look like and how we can make it happen.
