Anti-Poverty Week 2018 Conference: The Poverty Problem; whose fault is it anyway?
Date: 17-18 October 2018
The Brotherhood’s Research and Policy Director, Shelley Mallett will be guest speaker at the Community Information and Support Victoria’s conference, The Poverty Problem; whose fault is it anyway?
Is poverty in Australia a reflection of society, or the individual? This Anti-Poverty Week conference will explore poverty and how we can, as individuals and as a collective, bring about real change.
Poverty in Australia is real. We need a society that supports and holds those experiencing hardship versus punitive, conditional welfare. No Australian should live in poverty.
Conference participants will develop a deeper understanding of this complex issue including the scope and size of the problem. They’ll hear about initiatives that are making a difference for their local communities, the systemic change required to alleviate poverty and how to become changemakers. See the conference program.
