04/03/2014 – Most EAPN National Networks have alerted national and local media on the launch of EAPN’s campaign around the European Elections Electing Champions for a Social Europe. Along with European Organisations, some of which also participated in the press briefing with MEPs and candidates to the 2014, they have also been active on social media and are on board for this active 2-month campaign!
See the campaign’s blog: http://electingchampionsin2014.net and particularly the activities on the ground that national networks are organising: http://electingchampionsin2014.net/contacts-and-references/ , notably in May as Electinos approach.
Networks like EAPN Spain and EAPN Italy (CILAP) also released videos on the occasion of the launch.
Read the press release published on the press breifing day: Electing CHAMPIONS for a Social Europe: A Call for Commitment where several MEPs and a new candidate signed up to EAPN’s pledge“If elected, I commit to make the fight against poverty, social exclusion and inequality a priority item on the Parliament and EU agenda by defending the development of an explicit European anti-poverty strategy and an annual hearing of people experiencing poverty to monitor its implementation and progress.”
