In NSW join us as part of our celebrations for Close the Gap Day, we will be holding a casual meet-up in Peace Park (70-80 Myrtle Street, Chippendale), at 1pm on the same day. Staff and activists from the Action Centre will be in attendance, so come and say hi. We’ll be encouraging people to take part in national actions for Close the Gap, as well as creating awareness and providing info about research for our Demand Dignity campaign and its indigenous component, due to launch in October 2009
