Dear Prime Minister,

“No Poverty” is the number one UN Sustainable Development Goal that your Government signed in 2015. Those goals apply globally and here in Australia.

This Anti-Poverty Week we are writing to you urging you to commit your Government to ending poverty here in Australia, while also doing our fair share as a good global citizen to ending poverty globally.

Domestically, the Australian Government has committed to at least halving poverty “in all its dimensions according to national definitions.”

Experts agree that we can get close to eradicating extreme poverty by 2030 if countries work together. While other countries are increasing overseas aid, the Government has cut aid to the lowest it has ever been. It is time to increase aid funding to move us quickly towards our global promise of 70 cents in every $100 (investing 0.7% of our gross national income (GNI)).

This Anti-Poverty Week, let’s convert our international commitment to reduce poverty in Australia and overseas into meaningful action.
