    Townsville October 2021 Meeting

    Join us for the next meeting towards building a broad based alliance in Townsville. 

    Community leaders from unions, faith groups and community organisations will get together to share stories and progress conversations towards building a locally led and funded Alliance in Townsville. 

    Our Alliance brings together a diversity of leaders and organisations to act on things that no one organisation can win on their own. 

    We build relational power by taking the time to listen to each other’s stories and understand the perspectives and experiences of others. This radical practise has the power to transform our communities and our region.
