Union Aid Abroad-APHEDA People

Union Aid Abroad-APHEDA is about people – people working together to make things better for all. As the global justice organisation of the Australian union movement, each and every APHEDA supporter, member, partner, activist and participant here in Australia and all around the world contributes to the work it takes to tackle inequality and injustice.

Long-term activists Peter Jennings and Ruth Ellis were honoured at this year's AGM for their commitment and dedication to APHEDA's goals.
