(Alex Greenwich, 11 March 2015, www.childrensfestival.com.au)
Congratulations on your second Sydney Children's Festival, and your goal to build a tolerant and inclusive society.
I strongly support acceptance, diversity and inclusion, and share your goal of a welcoming and inclusive Society.
As Member for Sydney, I've been working to improve Child care and education opportunities in the inner city. Recent years have seen a dramatic increase in the number of inner city families with children and in the diversity of those families. I’m proud to represent such a tolerant and vibrant area, and to support your project.
Children's Festivals are a unique way to encourage cross-cultural connections and understanding, and create dialogue that helps break down barriers and prevent conflict.
I’m pleased to attend and speak at the Children's Festival again this year and hope for another successful event.
