More effective communications
You may notice that our website has changed and that our communications look and feel a little different to previous communications you may have received from Act for Peace.
It’s all part of work we have been doing over the past few months to make our communications more effective and encourage more people to become Act for Peace supporters. This is important, because the more people taking action, the bigger the difference we can make together.
We conducted research with you, our supporters, and the feedback suggested that it was time to update our style and approach so we can communicate more clearly what we are all about.
As a result, we have come up with a more effective way to convey our mission, and to call on people who are passionate about peace and social justice to support grass-roots projects that prevent and reduce suffering caused by conflicts and natural disasters.
Who we are and what we do hasn’t changed. We are just communicating this more clearly. If you are a regular supporter of Act for Peace or the Christmas Bowl, you can keep supporting us in exactly the same way.
We’d like to thank all of you who gave us your feedback and helped to shape our new approach. You wanted us to look more contemporary and hard-hitting. In response, we have updated our logo, website and the style of our communications. You also wanted us to be more outspoken about injustice and about how people in Australia can work with others around the world to empower local communities to create change – and that’s just what we’re doing, starting with the new statement in our logo “Confronting injustice together through the ACT Alliance”.
