EAPN Spain: a national Congress gives visibility to people experiencing poverty and their rights as citizens

Organized by EAPN Spain and supported by public funding, a Congress on Fundamental Rights and People Experiencing Poverty and Social Exclusion will be held in Madrid on 18-20 November, as a closing event of the 2010 European Year.

Nearly 300 people from all over the country will debate on the six titles of Fundamental Rights comprised in the Lisbon Treaty, from their personal and social experiences. They will present the conclusions of a previous work done within their local organizations, on equal foot with representatives of the three branches of the State powers. This event is expected to have an important lobbying impact on people experiencing poverty’s visibility and citizenship rights. Access the event’s website.
