May 4th Housing Assembly – Real Action Following Social Justice Gathering

At our recent Social Justice Gathering, many committed to coming along to the Affordable Housing Assembly with Planning Minister Anthony Roberts next Thursday night. So we wanted to encourage you to still do that. Below are the final details on how the night will run.

Firstly, if you haven’t registered with the Sydney Alliance yet please do so here, or if you prefer let us know in the Office by email or call  9307 8465 and we will take care of it for you.

On the night: What we need to do is gather together as Sydney Catholics as it is really important for the organisations there to be visible as an organised group. We don’t want to make that too burdensome on any of you, so we were hoping you might just come to find Kim from the Office when you arrive so we can all sit together and she will have little Archdiocese of Sydney badges for you all. Most of you know Kim so this shouldn’t be too hard, but she will also be wearing one of the badges along with a name badge and will have a ‘Sydney Catholic Archdiocese’ sign to help you spot her. She will be there from 6pm. If you can’t find her, or have any trouble on the night please call 0417 570 980.

The night is one of sharing stories, of demonstrating organisational diversity to engage the Minister with our ask for higher affordability targets in the new district housing plans being drawn up for all of Sydney. It is most important that he sees how all kinds of different Sydney-siders have come together and care about this issue. It will be a powerful night and we hope, if this is the first Sydney Alliance assembly you’ve been to, that you will feel encouraged and inspired.

Please bring along any friends or other folks from your parish – all most welcome! If you have any questions please just get in touch with us.
