Equality Week – Letter Writing for the Living Wage

6th-15th March is Quaker Equality Week, when Quakers across the country will be joining with others to act for equality.  You are warmly invited to join Peace Hub’s contribution to Equality Week:

Letter Writing Workshop: The Living Wage

11:00 – 14:30 Wednesday 11th March 2015

at Peace Hub, 41 Bull St, B4 6AF

The Living Wage is an hourly rate of pay calculated according to the basic cost of living in the UK.  It is set independently and updated annually for companies to voluntarily sign up to, so that their workers receive a fair rate of pay.

The workshop is open to anyone to drop in between 11 and 2:30 – Quakers and non-Quakers alike.  We will have template letters with messages of support for companies that pay the living wage, and a call to other companies to sign up.  If you’ve only got 2 minutes you can quickly add you signature – if you’ve got a bit longer, there’s the opportunity to personalise your message.

You can see what else is happening for Equality Week locally and nationally – so get stuck in!

When I see the posts I have missed, or events I have only dimly been aware of, etc. I realise how inept is my current state of communication/ connection/ activity with the Peace Hub. I am not sure how to improve matters, as I have no idea what is realistic for me, or others. However, I have ticked the boxes below as a start. Greetings and congratulations on getting an arms embargo response, L.
