Dear Supporter

We first want to thank those of you who have made a donation to TASC in the past few weeks. All donations, however small, will help to ensure that TASC can continue to work for equality and democracy in these turbulent times. 

This week TASC is launching “The Ireland We Want”, a series of policy briefs that address urgent issues in Ireland today, in anticipation of a new government and in recognition of the critical challenges we now face.

Our blog series continues below with discussions on the renewal of housing rights and how emission reduction numbers really do matter.

“Thinking through the Crisis” podcast continues with Eileen Culloty, DCU speaking on misinformation surrounding COVID-19 and how we might navigate this.

Wishing you well for the week ahead
