Kimberley Jane Elizabeth Kitching was an Australian politician, lawyer, and trade unionist. A member of the Labor Party, she was a Senator for Victoria from October 2016 until her death in March 2022.
Kitching was a firm advocate of human rights protection and legislation and a proponent of Magnitsky-style legislation in Australia. She had introduced a private member’s bill in August 2021 before the government introduced its own bill in November 2021.
She was also a warm supporter of the print industry and a firm advocate and lobby partner when the industry sought support for the Keep Me Posted campaign. Without the support of Senator Kitching, Keep Me Posted, would have not achieved a Treasury Consultation nor purposeful outcome.
