Poverty Action Sunday

Formerly the Day for the Unemployed – we are asked to give, act and pray to ensure people on the margins are fully involved in the world we build as we emerge from the pandemic. We live in tough times. The past few months have highlighted the inequalities that sweep too many people into poverty. But we have also been reminded of the values that matter most: mutuality, compassion and community. As we journey forward together, we have the chance to do things differently. If we are to build a society in which everyone can live a full life, free from poverty, we must ensure the voices of people who are struggling to make ends meet are heard.
