Special screening of groundbreaking child poverty documentary marks World Poverty Day in Kapiti

 Bryan Bruce’s groundbreaking documentary on child poverty in New Zealand will screen at a special showing in Kapiti on World Poverty Day, Wednesday 17 October 2012.

“We are inviting Kāpiti residents to join us at the Downtown Cinema for this special screening of Inside Child Poverty to raise awareness of the extent of child poverty in New Zealand and the actions that can be taken to address this issue of national significance,” says Sylvia Bagnall of CPAG Wellington. 

“While World Poverty Day draws international attention to absolute poverty, we want to also highlight the plight of 270,000 children living in relative poverty in New Zealand.

Guest Speakers

Following the screening, three local people will speak about their work to address child poverty:

  • Cr Penny Gaylor;
  • Deborah Morris-Travers of the Every Child Counts coalition; and
  • Otaki college student, Sara Van Der Put who is making her own documentary about child poverty in Kapiti.

“The screening will raise awareness and it will also support the Child Poverty Action Group, which is currently preparing to take its case about the discrimination of the In-Work Tax Credit to the Court of Appeal,” concludes Sylvia Bagnall.
