Anti-Poverty Week 2011 will take place between October 16-22, and will feature a range of activities in every state. Several Dog and Bone clients, including St Vincent de Paul, are playing an active role in events.
The goal of Anti-Poverty week is to strengthen public awareness and discussion of issues relating to poverty and homelessness in Australia, and to encourage people to do something about it. Both individuals and organisations are encouraged to either organise an event yourself, or get involved in one of the many activities that are being run by others.
