Mary Laumua has become an activist for her community of public housing tenants in the Sydney suburb of Waterloo.
The 37-year-old community worker and mother of four, including seven-month-old baby Nayla, wants to shine a light on the struggles of public housing tenants facing large-scale redevelopment and dislocation.
It’s important because we want everyone in Australia and around the world to know that we matter, she said.
Ms Laumua is part of a small team who have reached out to hundreds of tenants in two high-rise towers set for demolition.
They go into homes to install coloured lights in their windows.
There’s a lot of anxiety around it all, so the lights are a way of expressing how they’re feeling.

You might just be the one person that makes their day by coming [and] installing those lights — via ABC News
