Dr Berhan Ahmed Victorian Australian of the Year 2009; Chairperson, African Think Tank
When I joined the Greens in 2002, Alex was the driving force for my membership recruitment. I saw the Greens as having a vision stretching across all aspects of our social and environmental challenges, thanks to Alex. Alex exemplifies that breadth of commitment and has shown herself as a strong and articulate advocate on issues ranging from social justice to environmental imperatives.
Alex has proven herself a friend of Victoria’s African communities on so many occasions and is a strong leader and advocate for her own Indian community in Victoria. I believe she would make an excellent Senator for Victoria.
