October 16, 2019
Liberal Federal Member for Wentworth, Dave Sharma has welcomed the announcement of $5.7 million for Jewish schools and religious institutions to bolster safety and security within the Wentworth community.
The Australian Government has allocated $41.9 million under Round 4 of the Safer Communities Fund to enhance security at schools, places of religious worship and community organisations which work with children vulnerable to harassment or violence stemming from racial or religious intolerance.
Dave Sharma said: “Ensuring Australians can practice their faith and traditions in peace and safety, without harassment or intimidation, is a core Australian value and one of the most important duties of any government.”
