Prahran MP Clem Newton-Brown is inviting residents of his electorate to a community forum this month to coincide with the anniversary of the 2010 state election.

Newton-Brown said he organised the forum as another way for local residents to speak to him about the work of the state Government.

The Liberal MLA faced criticism from the LGBTI community this year after controversially voting in favour of the Government’s Equal Opportunity Amendment Bill, which made it easier for religious organisations to discriminate against gay, lesbian and transgender people.

Weeks later, he pushed for more funding for the Safe Schools Coalition Victoria in future state budgets and met with key community representatives to discuss expanding the program’s funding to extend its reach.

The forum will be held on November 28 from 6pm at the Melbourne Bowling Club in Windsor.

Newton-Brown encouraged anyone who is unable to attend the forum to contact him.
