Poverty Debate Launched
The CSJ launches today a brand new social networking website for poverty fighting organisations across the UK and beyond. Poverty Debate is a new facility that allows you to create a profile, blog, add friends and meet other poverty fighters online.
The new CSJ Blog is also available on Poverty Debate with comment on current news stories, links and articles from CSJ Alliance partners tackling social breakdown in Britain today.
"Poverty Debate is a sort of facebook for British poverty fighters," says Projects Director Chris Bullivant, "We hope it's a great way for the members of CSJ Alliance to get to know and learn from each other." Sign up and create your profile here!
