Remembering Deb Foskey: a passionate feminist, environmentalist and change-maker

Feminists and environmentalists alike have mourned the loss of Dr Deb Foskey who died a year ago on 1 May 2020 at 70 years of age, after a lifetime of contributing and campaigning.
Deb was perhaps most well-known as a Greens member of the ACT Legislative Assembly from 2004-2008. Prior to her election to parliament, Deb worked with IWDA as its part-time Canberra representative in the 1990s and early 2000s. 

A memorial service and celebration will be held in Canberra at the Yarralumla Primary School Hall, Loftus St Yarralumla from 1.30-3.30pm on Saturday 1 May 2021. 

It would be appreciated if you could bring a plate of food to share for afternoon tea, preferably finger food that can easily be shared in a COVID-friendly manner - please kindly indicate if that is possible know when you RSVP. 

» Please RSVP to by 30 April for COVID and catering purposes. 
» If you are unable to attend the memorial service, but wish to contribute to the Dr Deb Foskey Fund to support women in remote, regional or rural communities to campaign for environmental and climate action, you can do so here.
