Demand Dignity Series: Making Indigenous Poverty History

As part of our series of talks on the Millennium Development Goals and in line with Amnesty International's global campaign of Demand Dignity, we are holding a talk on Indigenous Poverty.

Graeme Mundine, the Executive Secretary of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Ecumenical Commission (NATSIEC), will discuss the Make Indigenous Poverty History Project, which aims to ensure that the Millennium Development Goals do not overlook the poverty suffered by Indigenous peoples around the world, especially in Australia.

Amnesty International Australia campaigns to protect indigenous rights, recently lobbying for the reinstatement of the Racial Discrimination Act.

Human rights and poverty are inextricably linked and poverty reduction strategies must address the particular needs of Indigenous peoples.

To learn more about this topical issue, please attend this seminar which promises to be an interesting and essential insight into issues surrounding Indigenous poverty.

When: 23rd of February

Time: 12pm - 1pm

Venue: NSW Action Centre, 79 Myrtle st Chippendale
