AGM and Guest Speaker Laura O'Connell Rapira
We had the pleasure of hosting our members and supporters once again for CPAG's Annual General Meeting on 24th July 2019. The AGM was held at Saint Columba Centre. We reflected on CPAG‘s achievements and outputs for the year, as well as looking for better and more sustainable ways to move forward into the future.
The AGM was followed by a Guest talk by Laura O'Connell Rapira, Director of ActionStation. Laura gave a very insightful talk about ActionStation's model for people-powered change and values-based messaging. She shared lessons from the successful mental and sexual health funding campaigns which resulted in a $2.3b boost in Budget 2019 as well as reported on progress with Child Poverty Action Group and ActionStation's joint petition-based campaign to transform our welfare system so it is 'fit for families'.
A recording of Laura's talk will be made available soon!
