Poverty Truth Commission final gathering

By Martin Johnstone
April 4, 2011

The closing gathering of Scotland’s first Poverty Truth Commission will take place in Glasgow City Chambers (George Square, Glasgow) on the 16 April 2011 from 2 – 4pm (doors open at 1.15pm).

For the last two years, Scotland’s first Poverty Truth Commission has brought together two groups of people: people who exercise power and influence in Scottish society and people who live every day with the struggle against poverty.

On the 16 April, members of the Poverty Truth Commission will share what we have learnt together and what we believe needs to happen now.

It will be an inspiring and challenging afternoon. We will communicate through drama, film, music and the spoken word. We will share what we have learnt from one another. We will present our challenges to all parts of Scottish society.

To register, please contact the Commission on info@povertytruthcommission.org or 0141 248 2905. Pre-registration is important as places are limited. You can find out more about the Commission and its members at www.povertytruthcommission.org.


Martin Johnstone is a Church of Scotland (Presbyterian) minister, the Kirk's urban adviser, and secretary to the Poverty Truth Commission.
