Global campaign to end poverty and injustice

Micah ChallengeMaria  signed a 40-metre scroll containing 110 000 signatures as part of the Make Poverty History/ Micah Challenge campaign in June, 2010. The Micah Challenge is a global campaign of Christians speaking out against poverty and injustice. Maria met with Kaye Reid, Sam Quinlan, Zoe Solomon, Jasmine Zapka and Melinda McAlpine during their four-day visit to Canberra. Discussions centred on ways to help poor countries cope with the effects of climate change and halve global poverty by 2015. The group also held a 3D presentation (complete with red tinted glasses of compassion) in the parliamentary theatre titled "The World, We Want to See".
