Jehni (Virginia) Thomas-Wurth for Senate

Jehni grew up in NSW and travelled the eastern states and Northern Territory in her early years, even living on a cattle station in central Queensland briefly, before moving to Western Australia where she spent the majority of her adult life in library and information sciences.  Now retired in Tasmania’s beautiful Huon Valley.

Jehni is passionate about speaking up for the voiceless and powerless. There are many humans who fit into this category, but Jehni feels that by focusing on those with the least agency – non-human animals – we are setting the baseline for how we want to behave as a society.  This is why the core values of the Animal Justice Party resonate with her: when we normalise kindness, respect, equality and non-violence, we are all better for it.

When she is not working on behalf of animals, Jehni enjoys the challenge of cooking life-changing, taste-bud dazzling plant-based food (frequently unsuccessfully) and living sustainably on her rural property which she shares with her husband and two rescued four-footers, a tabby hellcat called Poly and RidgebackX dog Bean who is considering application to Mensa.

Donate to get Jehni elected! 

Contesting elections is a costly exercise - it's a $2000 fee per candidate to get on the ballot paper and then there are advertising and printing costs! We estimate it will cost us a minimum of $10k to cover candidate fees, advertising and printing for Jehni's campaign. We'd love to double or triple that to give her the best chance of being elected to represent Animal Justice Party.

Can you chip in to cover some of the costs?
