It has been one year since the election of Dr Helen Haines to Federal Parliament – the first Independent to succeed an Independent in Australia’s history.

On the anniversary, May 18, Team Orange joined Helen and Alana Johnson in a fireside chat to relive the memories of Indi’s third successful community-led orange campaign and hear from Helen directly about her experiences in Canberra.

The short video (below) was made to mark this milestone, capturing the vibrant energy, hard work and fun of the campaign.
