This week in our "What I do" series, we'll be speaking to Child Poverty Action Group (CPAC) co-convener Alan Johnson.

The former Manukau City Councillor helped found CPAC in 2000 out of concern over the effects of growing child poverty.

He authored The Growing Divide: A State of the Nation Report from the Salvation Army 2012, which highlights the effects of increasing income inequality in New Zealand.

Johnson lives and works in South Auckland, where he is also a community activist and involved in education and sports administration

Ask your questions below and Johnson will answer them from 12pm.
