We hope that you will join us as we report back on another year of grassroots activism during an ongoing global pandemic. Our network has continued to flourish and continues to MOBILISE, RESIST and TRANSFORM despite the many challenges!
Like many things in 2021, this Annual General Meeting will be a little different.
We will host the AGM via Zoom to ensure that we remain compliant with the enduring COVID-19 restrictions on gatherings.
