Enough for All – Election Forum 2020

Wednesday, 26 August 2020, 6:00-7:30 pm
St Peter’s on Willis, Wellington

Join us to hear from political leaders how their parties plan to deliver a thriving and equitable Aotearoa. Now more than ever, Covid-19 has shown us that we are dependent on each other and no matter where we come from, what we look like, or how much money we have, it’s time to pull together to demand decent homes, support and income for everyone.

But right now, the people with the least in Aotearoa are being left behind.
Come listen to the political parties answer the demands of people living and working on the frontlines of housing, welfare and tax issues.

The political forum will go from 6 – 7.30pm, with doors open and refreshments served from 5.30pm.
There will also be live entertainment
