Stop Child Poverty lunchtime rally

Wednesday, October 17, 1pm, Parliament Gropunds, Wellington

Stop Child Poverty lunchtime rally with Anika Moa, Celia Wade-Brown & Metiria Turei.
Join us on Parliament grounds as we celebrate International Elimination of Poverty
day and take a step to stop child poverty here in New Zealand. MC’d by Wellington
Mayor Celia Wade-Brown, we’re marking the occasion with a special one-off
performance from singer-songwriter Anika Moa, speeches, and school performances.
Parents, families, supporters, and kids of all ages are welcome! Spread the word on
Twitter: #stopchildpoverty bit.ly/stopchildpoverty (http://bit.ly/stopchildpoverty)
All kids deserve a good life and a fair future. New Zealand is a great place to grow
up for some kids, but 270,000 others currently live in poverty. Metiria Turei’s
Member’s Bill to create a child payment for these kids will be debated in Parliament
the same afternoon. Together, we can ask politicians to support this and other
measures that give kids a fighting chance.
