Join us for two days of conversation, stories, and action, at Australia’s largest and most diverse Anti-Poverty Week event, and the only one organised by low-income people themselves.
We will be discussing the punishing policies making life tougher for those out of work, and living in poverty, and how we can struggle for justice and respect. We will focus on the voices of welfare recipients, whose views have been ignored for too long.
Featuring Dr. John Falzon, CEO of St. Vincent De Paul, plus guest speakers from Auckland Action Against Poverty, Australian Unemployed Workers’ Union, Fair Go For Pensioners, Community And Public Sector Union, Aboriginal Legal Rights Movement, First Nations Workers Alliance, Seeds Of Affinity, and more.
Featuring discussions on youth poverty, electricity prices, sole parents, mental health and poverty, public housing, disability rights, job agencies, women exiting prison, the jobs crisis, the attacks on Centrelink workers’ pay and conditions, Work For The Dole, and more.
TRANSPORT ASSISTANCE and CHILDCARE available.
