Social Justice

Committed to social justice and the environment, Addi Road stands in solidarity with those in our local community who are working to make the world a better, greener, fairer place.

In addition to programs we run and  heavily-subsidised rent we provide for our tenant organisations on site, we regularly support community based campaigns that reflect the concerns and needs of the Inner West.

Recent campaigns we support are Lock the Gate against coal seam gas exploration, #RacismNotWelcome, Stand up for TAFE, Refugee Action Coalition, Rainbow Families and Save Marrickville.

The Addi Road Food Pantry is a low cost affordable grocer here on site that rescues fresh fruit, vegetables, bread and other good quality food from being thrown into landfill and passes them on at highly affordable rates to our community.

By shopping at The Food Pantry you’ll be able to stretch your budget and put high quality and healthy food on the table for you and your family all the whilst reducing your carbon footprint.

Our mission is simple: rescue food and fight hunger.

Launched in 2016 our Food Pantry program has expanded from it’s humble beginnings operating out of an old shipping container to now occupying half of Hut 1 here on site. We’re rescuing over one tonne of food every week and are supported by a fantastic team of volunteers, staff and partner organisations.

#RacismNOTwelcome

#RacismNOTWelcome is a grassroots movement. An anti-racism campaign driven by local communities, organisations, businesses and Councils.

It is growing into one of the most important social justice campaigns ever seen in Australia.

July 2021 update: we will restart Community A Fair when public health regulations allow.

A free monthly event, Community A Fair connects the community with vital service providers, community groups, artists, performers and stall holders—from jumping castles and bollywood dancing workshops, to health and disability services.

Need help accessing government departments such as Centrelink or NSW Health? Looking for additional support to help make ends meet from one of our outreach organisations? Or simply need somewhere to take the kids for entertainment during the school holidays?

Standing at the gates to Addi Road, this public monument—to those who have worked for peace, resisted war or fought against the causes of war for a more just and peaceful world—is the first of its kind in Australia

From activists and artists to former politicians and soldiers, the range and diversity of those celebrated for their contributions is inspiring and enduring.
