This is going to be a super kid-friendly event so please bring the whole family and let's show New Zealand we want a fair deal for all our beautiful children. We've got lots of balloons, flags, face painters, bubble blowing, stilt walkers, music, interactive art and heaps more! There's even some free food. Word is the sun is going to shine too!

Lucy Lawless, Bryan Bruce and Diane Robertson (CEO of the Auckland City Mission) are speaking as well representatives from most of the political parties. (Come on Act and Conservatives, we'd love to have you here too!)

Join us in 'taking steps against child poverty' from Britomart to Aotea Square to call for real action on child poverty in our country.
