Description

“I long, as does every human being, to be at home wherever I find myself.” Maya Angelou

This event brings an opportunity to reflect on citizenship and belonging. Falling as it does in Anti-Poverty Week, we will move beyond bullet points and recommendations to a call for action and solidarity with those in our communities who are homeless, poor and marginalised.
