Community Building - Rally in Civic Square, Friday 12 Sept 12-1.30pm
As you may be aware, the Wellington City Council plans to sell Council-owned properties on Victoria and Willis Streets, in which over fifteen community groups are currently located. These groups include the Wellington Community Law Centre, Courtenay's, Vincent's Art Workshop, Mokai Kainga, ALAY Centre for Refugees & Migrants, Volunteer Wellington, ZEAL, the Women's Health Collective, Women's Loan Fund and Wellington Independent Rape Crisis. All these groups will have to relocate as a result of the sale. We want the Council to value the work of community groups and the well-being of our City by setting aside a building in this block to establish a dedicated community group space in the inner city. This is a great opportunity to create a sustainable solution to community group accommodation.
COME DOWN TO CIVIC SQUARE ON FRIDAY 12 SEPTEMBER 12PM-1.30PM to show your support for a dedicated community group building in the heart of our City. See attached flyer for more details.
