"Why would you get involved in politics when you could be spending time drinking cocktails, going to the beach or hanging out with family and friends?
People view politicians and politics with suspicion, if not downright hostility. Every other day someone declares that politics is broken and reform is dead.
Most of us just rock up for a sausage and a moment at the ballot box every few years. But in that way the decisions that affect all of us become the preserve of those few who care enough, those who have vested interests, motivated extremists and insiders.
However, the decisions made in our parliaments affect everyday life. They also affect our future. So, politics matters. Deciding whether to get involved or leaving it to other people, matters too.
After almost two decades as Labor party member, Terri Butler remembers the cocktails foregone and kids' school concerts missed and argues that yes, it is worth it."
About our in-conversation guests:
Amanda Bradley is the Manager of Children by Choice, Australia’s only independent, all options unplanned pregnancy counselling and community education service. She has over 20 years’ experience working with communities and 10 years of leadership experience in the not for profit and public health sectors both in Queensland and New Zealand. She is passionate about equality and was a feminist long before she understood what it meant to be one.
Ali France is a speaker, writer, amputee, and disability rights activist. She is the Convener of Labor Enabled, the first group dedicated to people with disabilities established within an Australian political party. Ali is an Aussie 'No Limits' paddler and athlete.
