Duncan Storrar

Duncan Storrar – who sparked a national conversation about welfare and tax policy, not to mention ethical journalism and politics – is an activist and social critic who lives in Victoria. He focuses his work on the realities of life in the low-or-no-wage sector, and advocates for meaningful reform with the goal of returning dignity and stability to the lives of not only his own family, but the lives of everyone like them.

In the months since his Q&A appearance, he has realized that his treatment could have a chilling effect on other low-income Australians and heads an awareness initiative called Rise And Be Heard, aiming to encourage other people to speak out with as little fear in the hope that together, we can make a real difference for those Australians too often ignored by Canberra.
