Your Committee, Your Voice

In the year since launching our Network, we have now achieved the formation of a permament Dance Committee within Equity’s democratic structure.

This is an exciting moment for us. It gives us a solid structure to work on campaigns and priorities, using the strength of the hundreds of Network members to deliver our goals.

We hope to see you there!
