What is Activism? What is Advocacy?

Hosted by the Ministry for Pacific Peoples, the Love Life Fono Trust invites you to listen and engage with a panel of experts as we explore the history of Pacific and Rainbow activism and advocacy in the region.

Where have we come from? Who has come before us? And what challenges do we face today?

Join us for a talanoa with Labour MP Louisa Wall, the driving force behind the Marriage Amendment Act; Tuiloma Lina-Jodi Samu and Taine Polkinghorne, Pasifika and SOGISC advisors at the Human Rights Commission; Luisa Tora, Fijian advocacy warrior; and Misa Dr Melani Anae, Pacific Panther, Matai and thought leader.

Come through Rainbow Pacific People. Come and get your life!
