  • Safer Three Kings: No More Bottle Stores
    The application for a new off-licence (bottle store) at 509 Mt Albert Rd, Three Kings, has been WITHDRAWN by the applicant, meaning it won't be going ahead. The information provided notes the withdrawal is because of the large number of community objections - well done everyone for speaking up and making sure Super Liquor and the applying business owner knew Three Kings wasn't ok with another bottle store in our community. This is a huge win, thank you so much for your support!

  • Better sex education in schools
    The Government has announced Mates and Dates, a healthy relationships course for secondary school students, will be rolled out nationwide with funding of $18 million provided to make sure it expands to reach 180,000 students, up from 37,000 young people. Last year over 5,000 of us got behind Lauren and Ruby’s call for better sex education in schools, especially around consent. They asked that Mates and Dates be introduced into all high schools in New Zealand. The programme consists of five hour-long sessions on healthy relationships, consent, gender and identity, what to do when things go wrong, and how to keep safe. Read more https://bit.ly/2oq8Ppo

  • Porirua College singers to lead the anthem at the next All Blacks test
    NZ Rugby has been talking behind-the-scenes, since our petition began, with Le ART and their mentor Johnny Viliamu. Clearly they were as captivated by the young women's talent as we were. NZ Rugby is excited to announce that sweet-sounding trio Anastasia Sirila, Rosetta Lopa & Tiresa Foma'i, Le ART, will sing at a domestic competition Final this year. Their music mentor Jonny Viliamu has said, "It's perfect for them & they are so excited." I'm excited too. So while it's not an All Blacks test, Le ART are really happy with the outcome. I reckon they'll blow everyone away, and we'll see them on bigger stages. My final note is to you and the ActionStation community - thanks for supporting this petition and for backing those young women. It won't be the last time you hear about them! Ross

  • Save Social Housing!
    Our on-the-ground campaign was highly successful in bringing the community together and winning 11-4 at Council, an outcome many though was near impossible. The council will not be charging market rents for their social housing.

  • Stand Together for Social Work - Change the Registration Bill!
    Amy started the Stand Together for Social Work - Change the Registration Bill! campaign when new laws were drafted that would redefine who is or isn’t a social worker. She helped bring the social work community leaders together to draft an alternative to the bill. Social workers nationally emailed, called and visited their MPs with clear talking points. “The petition was noted by Ministers even before being presented so it clearly got attention and helped us get cut through,” says Amy. She is now “very hopeful. The bill is being redrafted with our communities supplementary order paper informing this. We are on the way to a good result.”
