International Day for the Eradication of Poverty 17 October 2019.
International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
APLE (Addressing Poverty with Lived Experience) is a national collective of individuals who experience poverty. The aim is to create a network across the UK to raise awareness of poverty, reduce stigma and work together with others to eradicate it.
APLE invite everyone to stand together in a visible show of solidarity on 17 October.
They want to promote the fantastic work going on and talk about proposed solutions - raising awareness of the need to eradicate poverty on both a local and national level.
The theme for 2019 is Acting together to empower children, their families and communities to end poverty.
To participate in lighting up the UK map:
