On 13th June, Sara Stace (Better Streets president), Stephen Hodge (We Ride Australia), and Sam Johnson (a Better Streets member) held a series of engagements at Parliament House in Canberra.
Key conversations revolved around:
Following the Better Streets delegation to Canberra, Sara Stace met with Wentworth federal MP, Independent Allegra Spender for a briefing. They recorded a short social media video, so keep an eye out for that soon.
Better Streets would like to welcome Monique to the Co-ordinator role. Monique is a cargo bike mum with two little kids. She's lucky to live on Gadigal land in the centre of Sydney near the Bourke Street cycleway.
She loves seeing people of all ages, shapes and sizes can enjoying quiet tree-lined streets on foot or by bike and wishes everyone had access to urban spaces like that. It makes her sad and angry that so much of our public space is dominated by cars.
Monique says she joined Better Streets to be part of a positive movement for change. She's here to listen to people’s concerns, find the common ground and weave together a story of our shared values. She looks forward to working together to create better streets for everyone, especially our kids.
