sharing visions of a good society
Church Action on Poverty's annual conference
Stoke-on-Trent Civic Centre
Saturday 30 January 2016
visions of a good society
Churches and communities across the UK are taking part in Good Society conversations – exploring what must be done to build a Good Society, listening especially to voices from poor and excluded communities.
At the conference, participants from those conversations will join Church Action on Poverty’s supporters to share our visions of the Good Society – and discuss how we can work together to make those visions real.
beyond food banks? the right to food?
The growing scandal of food poverty and hunger in the UK is one of the biggest obstacles to building a Good Society.
At the conference, we’ll hear from grassroots groups who are fighting to secure their basic human right to adequate food – and you’ll learn how you can be part of the growing movement for food justice.
