Carnival Action Plan for Summer: collecting signatures and raising awareness

While you are out and about at carnivals and festivals over the summer, please spare some time to support the campaigns for justice.
We need you to collect signatures for the Petition for legislative reform regarding deaths in custody, and to give out fliers to raise awareness.
Some people are already arranging to meet up so they can do this in teams, we will keep you updated on meeting times and places  - if you want to arrange a team in your own area just go onto one of these Campaign FaceBook pages and post your info and admin will repost for you.
If you would like us to post information regarding an event that may be suitable in your own area, please post on the FaceBook pages as well.
