If elected, Nizza would like to take the opportunity to vote for progressive policies. With 40 years ALP membership, Nizza has taken on leadership roles because she wants to motivate members to become more active and for our community to vote Labor. She has faith in our rank and file members who she believes will support policies that reflect the Party’s social justice principles. Nizza holds the following ALP positions:
• Secretary Double Bay/Bellevue Hill Branch
• Senior VP Wentworth FEC
• President Vaucluse SEC
• Secretary Woollahra LGC
• National/NSW Secretary of Labor for Refugees.
Nizza was Lead organiser in the Finance Sector Union for 20 years, coming up through membership ranks as a bank officer active in the Equal Pay campaign in the Whitlam era.
Nizza feels passionately about:
• Refugees and people seeking asylum
• Workers’ rights
• Pay equity for women
• Legislating for assisted dying
• Closing the Gap
• Aged care
• The Arts/ABC
• Emily’s List
• Rainbow Labor.
She’s the Secretary of Eastern Suburbs ABC Friends, a feminist and long-time member of Women’s Electoral Lobby and Women’s Action Abortion Campaign.
Nizza believes Labor must reform its refugee policy by working together with our regional neighbours, to welcome refugees and people seeking asylum.
