Socially Distanced Activism: Book Launch
How would your experience of the COVID-19 pandemic have been different if you had no access to the internet?
The APLE Collective – a group seeking to eradicate poverty – rooted their pandemic activism in expertise held by those with lived experience of poverty. This resulted in the decision to campaign against the exclusively digital response to the crisis and the alienation of people in poverty.
Drawing on case studies from Thrive Teeside, ATD Fourth World and Expert Citizens, the book ‘Socially Distanced Activism’ investigates how knowledge gained from lived experiences of poverty is integral to developing effective COVID-19 policy responses.
Join Ruth Lister, Katy Goldstraw, Tracey Herrington, Thomas Croft, Darren Murrinas, Nicola Gratton, Diana Skelton and Taliah Drayak on Wednesday 23rd June to launch ‘Socially Distanced Activism: Voices of Lived Experience of Poverty During COVID-19’.
