Change our suburbs, change our city
One thousand Sydneysiders from more than 50 community groups, religious organisations, and unions will fill the Town Hall on October 28 to challenge Sydney’s powerbrokers to make the changes to our city they’re asking for.
“Improvements to transport safety, local apprenticeships for disadvantaged youth, and better relations between young people and the law will be the asks put to decision-makers attending the Sydney Alliance City Assembly,” said Sydney Alliance Coalition Director Amanda Tattersall.
“Our listening campaign over the last 12 months has canvassed the views of more than 10,000 residents across the city on issues of transport, social inclusion, community support and health,” said Ms Tattersall.
“Alliance members will share compelling personal stories of why we need action.
“Then the decision-makers we’ve invited along will be asked to make a public commitment to the changes we’re asking for.”
The Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione and the Member for Granville Tony Issa are among those who’ll be attending the City Assembly.
Sydney Alliance partner organisations include the Catholic Church, the Uniting Church, the Baptist Union, Anglican congregations, the NSW Cancer Council, the NSW Nurses and Midwives Association, Western Sydney Community Forum, the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies, members of Sydney’s Climate Action Network, United Voice, the Rail Tram and Bus Union, the Arab Council of Australia, the National Tertiary Education Union and many others.
“Any organisations committed to working for the common good of Sydney and sharing our values are welcome to join,” said Ms Tattersall.
