EAPN and our European member organisations sent a letter to the newly elected MEPs that signed our pledge. In this letter, we are asking them to transform their commitment into actions, to ensure that the eradication of poverty in Europe is high up on the political agenda!
We made three specific requests for our allies in the European Parliament:
- Support the continuation of the Intergroup on Poverty and Human Rights, and mobilise their political group in favour of this.
- Participate in the ‘Roundtable on the Fight Against Poverty’ on 17 October, International Day Against Poverty.
- Recognise the important role that people experiencing poverty play in the fight against poverty and commit to attend the 18th European Meeting of People Experiencing Poverty.
We look forward to working with them to make Europe Poverty Free!
