Postgraduate study in social sciences and public policy

PetitionAUT alumni continue their fight against homelessness with petition

Alumni from AUT's Master of Human Rights have joined forces with members of Action Station and Gimme Shelter, along with Labour Deputy Leader Jacinda Ardern, and others to present a petition calling for the government to create a policy around homelessness. Such a policy would bring New Zealand in line with other OECD countries.

Tenisha Kumar (far left) and Shahd Mahmoud (second from right) are members of the Master of Human Rights class who have been consistently advocating for New Zealand's homeless youth.
