Max Rashbrooke & Marianne Elliott: how we talk about poverty
UPDATE - Max Rashbrooke & Marianne Elliott - Why we need to change the way we talk about poverty and inequality
I would like to invite and advise you that Max Rashbrooke will be joined by Marianne Elliott to discuss the above topic at 5:30pm on Monday September 14 at Connolly Hall, Guildford Terrace, Wellington.
Max has recently been in the UK and reports that he has returned "buzzing with ideas." What he was looking at there was the question of how we talk about poverty and inequality: why the things we say don't reach all of the public, and what to do about that. He will discuss 'Why we need to change the way we talk about poverty and inequality', or put another way, 'Poverty and inequality: how do we reach the people who aren't listening?'
Max will now be joined by Marianne Elliott, co-founder of ActionStation - a movement to facilitate on- and offline collective social action for progressive change. Trained as a human rights lawyer, she worked in Timor-Leste, New Zealand and the Gaza Strip before going to Afghanistan, where she served in the United Nations mission. She has also worked with the NZ Human Rights Commission and Oxfam, and is on the Board of Amnesty International New Zealand.the founder of ActionStation.
This discussion will be extremely interesting. All welcome; if you would like to attend please registerhere. If you know of anyone else who may be interested, please pass this invitation on to them.
