Alison Waters

Alison Waters is the Animal Justice Party’s Lead Candidate for the NSW election.

She is a social worker who has worked in the community sector for over 20 years. Alison has spent most of her career as an advocate for women, children and animals who experience domestic and family violence. She is committed to social justice and she will continue to amplify the voices of people who experience discrimination and disadvantage.

Alison became a member of the Animal Justice Party six years ago because she believes that animals need a strong political voice and that their wellbeing and interests must be considered by decision-makers.

Alison lives on Widjabul Wia-bal Country in Lismore and knows how fortunate she is to share that part of the world with koalas. 

As someone who lives in a region that experienced catastrophic flooding, Alison understands how important the fight for climate justice is and that it must include all species. Alison acknowledges that the climate crisis disproportionately impacts those who are most vulnerable and believes that the AJP has the strongest policies to tackle the growing threat of climate change and its impact on animals, people and the environment.

If elected, Alison will work hard every day to change the world for animals. 

Her priorities include protecting koalas and native forests, stopping the slaughter of kangaroos, getting hens out of battery cages and banning greyhound racing.

Donate to the 2023 State Election

On March 25, NSW will go to the polls for our state election. We need to ensure that we get another MP elected to replace Mark Pearson who is retiring. We are competing against the major parties who have big bucks from corporate and industry donors - but we have you and with you we are powerful. Any donation you can make will help us buy posters, pay for radio ads, and social media promotion. We have already proven how successful a minor party can be - help us get our next MP elected.
