      Anthony Albanese in his budget reply speech refers to older women as the fastest growing cohort of people facing homelessness and pledges to allocate social housing specifically for older women: https://www.sbs.com.au/news/anthony-albanese-pledges-10-billion-to-build-social-housing-in-budget-reply-speech

      Thanks for sharing your story, Marie. Awful that the forced eviction meant you lost a community and and a home where you were happy. Sounds like you’re great at advocating for yourself and others and knowing what your rights are.

      I went to a great workshop the other week on the power of storytelling and how to do that in a digital format. It was teaching how you could use stories for social impact by changing the hearts and minds of people, as well as the technical skills to do that digitally. Happy to share some of the key learnings I got from that, if people are interested?

      Great snippet of Anthony Albanese’s budget reply speech in the news article below. He talks about his own experience growing up in social housing, his pledge if he wins next election to build more social housing (20,000 new properties), and for 4,000 of these properties to be allocated to older women and women fleeing domestic violence:
