Description

An Anti-Poverty Week event run by and for the poor.

This is the fourth of Anti-Poverty Network SA's annual Anti-Poverty Week conferences, one of the only Anti-Poverty Week events run by and for people on low incomes.

The experts on poverty are the people in poverty!! Join us to hear from speakers with first-hand experience in poverty, and others fighting alongside us. The day will include:

- A panel of members speaking about their experience of poverty and unemployment
- A Skype-in from Dr Cassandra Goldie, CEO of Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS)
- A panel of spokespeople from different faith groups speaking about their positions on poverty and unemployment, and opportunities for collaboration and community outreach (speakers include Vicar-General Phillip Marshall (Catholic Church), Reverend Sue Ellis (Uniting Church), Rabbi Shoshana Kaminsky (Jewish community), and Lyndy Abram (Buddhist community))
- Break-out sessions on building comunity alliances and connections, plus key campaigns like raising Newstart and Youth Allowance, job agencies, housing and homelessness, public transport, and disability and poverty
- Short workshops on meditation, if you need a break
- Closing discussions on where to from here.

The cost is $25 for the day for a full-time worker, $10 for a concession holder/part-time worker, and pay-what-you-can-afford for low-income earners. Lunch is included.

This event will be held at Clayton Wesley Uniting Church, home of the incredible Hope's Cafe.
