The Brighton District Lodge Gain New Ambassador

Brighton Freemason District Lodge no 37 along with Freemasons Victoria are pleased to announce Mr Tim Wilson as an Ambassador for Freemasonry.

Tim Wilson was first elected to Federal Parliament in 2016 and achieved the strongest result in the Goldstein’s history.

He formally served as Australia’s Human Rights Commissioner. In that role he worked with the government to reform laws to stop and prevent terrorism, improving economic opportunities for indigenous Australians as well as standing up for laws to protect free speech and stop marginalised communities from public harassment.

Prior to serving as Commissioner he ran his own business, was a regular contributor on television and radio, was a policy director for a public policy think tank and worked in international development across South East Asia.

Amongst many awards, he was recognised as one of the ten emerging leaders of Australian society by The Australian newspaper in 2009.

He has a Bachelor of Arts (Policy Studies) at Monash University as well as a Masters of Diplomacy and Trade (International Trade) from the Monash Graduate School of Business.

Tim and his partner Ryan are passionate supporters and members of the mighty Melbourne Demons, and as a hobby collect gins from across the world.
