Want to get involved in my re-election campaign but don’t quite know where to start? Come along to our campaign intro on Sunday 8th December to hear about all the different kinds of ways you can support the campaign as well as learning all the tips and tricks you need to feel confident to talk about local politics.
We have an incredible opportunity this election to demonstrate that a bold, transformative approach to politics is not only possible, but popular. To do that we need as many people as possible to get involved and help build the grassroots movement which has been growing since I was first elected in 2016.
You’ll get a chance to hear about the strategy and philosophy underpinning the campaign as well as learning how to have productive conversations about politics, greens policies and our vision for Brisbane City Council.
Looking forward to seeing you there!

ANNOUNCEMENT - EVENT POSTPONED:
We've made the difficult decision today (28 Nov) to postpone this weekend's Reimagine Brisbane conference (with the exception of two sessions either side of lunch).
Uncle Sam Watson passed away yesterday. He was scheduled to speak at the morning plenary session of this conference on 30 November.
We've decided to reschedule the conference to 1 February out of respect to his family, and also because we feel it is important that First Nations voices are prioritised and well-represented in conversations about the future of our city.
We will still hold go ahead with holding smaller sessions this Saturday at 11am and 1pm covering the 'Homes For All' and 'Truly Inclusive Transport' topics, featuring the speakers we've previously advertised. These sessions will take place at Jagera Hall as programmed. Free lunch will still be provided, as will free childcare.
The amended program for this Saturday, 30 November is as follows:
11am - Intro, Acknowledgment of Country and Moment's Silence for Uncle Sam Watson
11:15am to 12:30pm - 'A Home For All' featuring Kylie Waldren (West End Community House), Dave Eden and Penny Carr (Tenants QLD)
12:30 to 1pm - free vegetarian lunch
1pm to 2pm - 'Truly Inclusive Transport' featuring Geoff Trappett (Inclusion Moves), Anna Campbell (Queensland Walks), Susanna Viles and Kath Angus.
Venue remains Jagera Hall, 121 Cordelia St, Musgrave Park. Both sessions will take place indoors in the main hall.
However the other activities, forums, workshops and outdoor stalls will not take place this weekend, and will instead be rescheduled for 1 February (details and venue TBC).
It's important to us that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have a meaningful opportunity to participate in discussions about the city's future, and when the local community is in mourning and unable to attend, we feel it wouldn't be appropriate to hold these conversations without them.
Thanks for understanding. Please share this around and help us spread the word about the change of plans.
Imagine a city where getting around is cheap, convenient, sustainable and healthy for everyone... a city where all residents are guaranteed a home, regardless of their social status or income level.
Imagine a city that embraced deliberative democracy, and gave local residents more power to decide how their neighbourhoods change and evolve, while respecting Indigenous sovereignty and working towards truth-telling, reparations, land rights and treaties.
Imagine a city where neighbours know, trust and support each other, and well-supported community groups connect us together, providing services, projects and events that actually meet people's needs...
Such a city is not only possible, but already slowly becoming a reality. Please come along on Saturday, 30 November to join us for a day of scheming and dreaming.
We'll be hosting talks and forums from experts in a range of fields, from housing to transport to the arts to climate change adaptation, as well as facilitating open discussions and collective visioning exercises so you can tell Jonno (and each other) what's important to you.
We're also making space for local community groups to set up stalls, connect with residents and let them know what you do. (Send us a message if you'd like to host a stall)
We want to hear from you! The discussions and ideas generated through the visioning workshops will directly feed into Jonno's policy advocacy strategy.
Food: vegetarian lunch and afternoon tea provided.
Accessibility: wheelchair accessible, disabled and ambulatory access bathrooms available, all bathrooms will be gender-neutral. If you require AUSLAN interpretation or child minding, please advise us and we will do our best to accommodate this.
Child care: we provide a free child care and children activities program, please sign up ahead on the link below. The form gives more details about age suitability if you have any questions please call or email the gabba ward office 3403 2165 or email@example.com
This event will be held on Yuggera and Turrbal country. Sovereignty over these territories has never been ceded.
The day's program is currently being updated and will be back online soon.
