Our Consumer Place Newsletters

These "newsletters" are so much more than what you might think of as a newsletter. In reality, they are an amazing collective resource - of ideas, events, reflections, deep thinking, political engagement, debate, profiles of incredible groups and projects that might otherwise go under the radar, and of course, interviews with incredible leaders in the international consumer/survivor community. We consider this a deeply valuable contribution to the "grey literature" - that is, it might go under the radar of conventional academic searches, but it is so rich and illuminating. Enjoy!

Some praise for the OCP newsletters:
* "WOW!!! the Our Consumer Place newsletter is sooooo good, very informative, interesting and you even dare to put in people's writings that some may find disturbing. Every issue is a top job!!! - Joanne Switserloot, a consumer worker in Melbourne.
* "This is a very important newsletter - I hope to make it compulsory reading for any of my courses next year!" - Robert Bland, a senior (non-consumer) educator, QLD.
* "an awesome read!" - Mary O'Hagan, a consumer leader in NZ
