We are pleased to welcome Marama Davidson MP, who is the Green Party spokesperson for Social Housing.

“This conversation on housing and shelter is central to the well-being of our society”, says Ash Holwell – GreenParty candidate for Whangarei.

“Our families need housing stability so they can put down roots in their communities and our children can settle at school.

“Without housing security our communities are at risk. This is an urgent issue that cannot be ignored.”

The Talks series is re-inventing the role of public discussions in Whangārei. Taking the energy of election year, Ash Holwell is creating a meaningful platform for powerful conversation on issues important to us all.

Family Talks will be held at The Old Stone Butter Factory, 8 Butter Factory Lane, Whangārei, at 7:00pm on Thursday 27 July.
