Students needing financial support to impact our legal system

Auckland

On Tuesday 17th May 7 current AUT LAWS776 students, Kirra Havemann, Emma Moon, Teresa Tawara, Jasmine Wright, Jackson Somers, Don Kusalei Mudara Beneragama and myself, Danielle will be presenting a petition on the front steps of Parliament.

The opportunity arose from volunteering with Sunday Blessings, an AUT affiliated community group. We compliment our grass roots community service by driving for law and policy reform to divert all edible retail food surplus from the bin, to distributors like Sunday Blessings.

Over 2 semesters, 10 students have spent hundreds of hours researching arguments that challenge our current (we believe) discriminatory food systems, utilising international and domestic human rights law. Presenting our petition next to Chlöe Swarbrick in Parliament is step 1 of our mission, followed by a gathering with Marama Davidson and others, then presenting of our research through submissions that will be online and available to the public.

7 of these 10 students are travelling to Wellington, and we need help to pay $1351.49, (plus $67 charged by Give a Little), the flight costs for 5 of the students.

We have public support from the Chief Commissioner Prof Paul Hunt (https://www.hrc.co.nz/news/government-must-make-use-its-human-rights-toolkit-tackle-food-insecurity/), guidance from human rights expert Prof Kris Gledhill & UN human rights lawyer Dr Tony Ellis and many NGO’s.

2019 ENTR501 students  31 May 2022

In 2019 sem 1 of ENTR501 (Introduction to Entrepreneurship), taught by Smita Singh, we pitched our idea of a student led extension of Sunday Blessings with a focus on food rescue to judges.

Here’s us before we rolled out our idea in Sem 2 of 2019, the BBus students behind utilising AUT’s surplus food to feed our housing and food insecure.

Now, 3 years later we have LLB students submitting for law change around food waste and the human right of accessibility to food.

Sunday Blessings and the hundreds of students who have worked hard to legitimise us, are proof that you can learn in practise and make a small difference within social issues whilst learning.

Thank you again for your support
