Anti-Poverty Week will run over two weeks this year, from 15-27 October (due to the Referendum on a First Nations Voice to Parliament being held on Saturday 14 October).

Libraries may wish to organise an event to support Anti-Poverty Week. This event can be a platform to:

  • Raise Awareness: By engaging with our community, we can shed light on the realities of poverty, fostering empathy and understanding.
  • Foster Collaboration: Through partnerships with local organisations and individuals, we can pool resources and expertise to create a more significant impact.
  • Empower Change: Our event can inspire action – whether through donations, volunteerism, or advocacy – that can contribute to poverty reduction efforts.
  • Educate and Inform: We can host talks, workshops, and discussions to inform attendees about the various aspects of poverty, its causes, and potential solutions.
  • Promote Unity: Together, we can showcase that even small actions can lead to meaningful change when we work collectively towards a common goal.

Such activities also help libraries to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals in our communities.
