Want to know how you can help MAKE POVERTY HISTORY? Wish to support the campaign but don’t know where to start? Interested in volunteering? Want to learn how to lobby your local politicians? Want to find out about upcoming campaigns and how you can get involved? Got questions? Well – we’ve got answers!

The Make Poverty History campaign is looking for people of all ages and all walks of life to get involved in upcoming campaigns. Whether you have lots of spare time on your hands or perhaps you’d rather help out every now and again, there are various opportunities to get involved. Letter writing, utilizing your creative skills, helping us distribute white arm bands, starting up a MPH group or club in your local area, or taking on an ongoing volunteer coordination position, are just some of the ways you can help make poverty history.

The info night will cover:

    • An overview of the Australian Make Poverty History Campaign
    • Upcoming campaigns and actions
    • Volunteering opportunities

The session will be followed by a Lobbying info session hosted by National MPH campaign co-coordinator Leanne Minshull:
