Fiona Patten

Fiona Patten is the founder and leader of the Reason Party, a political party committed to delivering real change for Victorians. 

Since being elected in 2014 Fiona has garnered respect from all sides of the political divide and has worked tirelessly to help deliver legislative reforms that many thought impossible. In Victoria’s Legislative Council Fiona has championed progressive causes such as creating safe access zones around abortion clinics from protesters, initiating Australia’s largest public inquiry into drug law reform, establishing online e-petitions to Parliament, Legalising Uber and other ride-sharing services, securing a trial for Victoria’s first medically supervised injecting centre and campaigning for Voluntary Assisted Dying laws.

Fiona is now working towards improving Victoria even further, and is pushing to implement a pill testing trial, electoral reform, legalise cannabis, legalise sex work, have religious accountability and amending the spent convictions bill.
