Systems change Advocacy, Support and Solidarity

The Systems Change Advocacy, Support and Solidarity (SASS) Group was founded in 2022 by a core group of experienced, hands-on changemakers, fiercely passionate about community-led, relationship-based, collaborative systems equity change and creating a more equitable future in Aotearoa New Zealand.

The group recognised that they were each spearheading systems change and equity mahi across a range of sectors. They were each committed to Te Tiriti o Waitangi, to embodying principles of inclusivity and accessibility, to centring lived experience and to amplifying the voices of others. They also recognised the potential for uplifting one another and for developing a collective voice.
