WHEN: Thursday 12th February 2015
TIME: 5.30pm – 7.30pm
VENUE: Kira – 2 Kilcairn Place, Greenwood
Mr Jordon Steele-John – Having been a candidate in 2013 State, Federal and Council elections as well as the 2014 WA Senate By-Election, Jordon is the second youngest parliamentary candidate in the State’s history. A passionate disability and youth advocate, Jordon’s family did not let Cerebral Palsy define who he was or what he could do. Jordon will share with you how being a home educated student and growing up in a multi-generational home taught him a love of history and politics as well as the value of all generations.
Ms Kerrie Duff – “To strive, to seek, and not to yield” is Kerrie’s favourite motto. Kerrie is an accomplished sportswoman, having represented Australia in Paralympic and other international competitions, who holds a Master’s Degree in Human Rights. Kerrie is actively involved in grass roots advocacy at state, national and international level. From an early age, Kerrie’s family gave her the opportunity to develop resilience and independence, regardless of comments from others, including the freedom, courage and skills to move interstate for work and to explore a relationship which led to her now being a wife to Martin and puppy mum to Lucy, their dog. Kerrie will share more of these moments with you.
