I’m Emma Hurst and I am the Upper House candidate for the Animal Justice Party. After doing my master’s in psychology I decided that I wanted to work to protect animals from cruelty so have been working in animal advocacy for over a decade. I was born and raised in Sydney and NSW has always been my home.
I’m running for NSW Parliament because I am sickened by the way our current Government allows major corporations to be cruel to animals simply for profit. Examples of this include the farming of companion animals in puppy farms, battery caged egg systems, and huge land clearing which has caused many of our native animals to become homeless and perish. Australians love animals and want to see them protected. By changing policies and law and blocking Bills that would otherwise bring about harm to animals, I’m confident we can build a country that is kind and respectful to all species.
In addition to lobbying for stronger protection of animals, I am also passionate about people and the environment and believe in kindness, non-violence and equality for all.
