“I have long been and will continue to be a strong advocate for the contribution of migrants and multiculturalism to making Western Sydney and, by extension, Australia the rich, diverse, and vibrant and community it is. As a life time resident of Western Sydney and Councillor at Liverpool City Council, I have witnessed the struggles and successes that newly arrived members of our community experience. Supporting the mission of WSMRC allows me to proactively and directly assist and advocate for immigrants and refugees.”
