Katherine Copsey

Meet Katherine

Prior to entering Parliament, Katherine was a planning and environment lawyer and community organiser.

Systemic responses to address the climate and inequality crises prompted her to run for Parliament. Katherine’s priorities as a Member of Parliament are climate action, no new coal and gas and a swift and just transition to renewables.

She also wants to see more affordable housing and better rights for renters so everyone in the Southern Metropolitan Region has a stable and comfortable place to call home, and strengthen our democracy through integrity reforms.
