Animal Justice Party
Soon after she was elected a Member of Parliament, Emma established and chaired a NSW Parliamentary Inquiry into the Use of Battery Cages for Hens in the Egg Production Industry, recommending a phase-out of battery cage hen farming in NSW.
Emma has now established a second Inquiry into the Exhibition of exotic animals in circuses and the Exhibition of cetaceans in New South Wales, where she will serve as Deputy Chair.
During her time in Parliament, Emma has also been a frequent opponent of Australian ag-gag laws, speaking out against the NSW Government's Right to Farm Bill and increased biosecurity legislation.
Currently, Emma is spearheading a campaign against puppy farming and is writing legislation that will ban puppy farms in NSW. She has also been advocating for stricter penalties for acts of animal cruelty and for animals to be recognised as domestic violence victims in their own right.
