BC Poverty Reduction Coalition March Newsletter

Click here to read our full newsletter.

Over the last month, communities across the province have been advocating for a Poverty Free BC. Organizations across the province held rallies, film screenings, and other events demanding a poverty reduction strategy. We’re also proud to be a part of the Fight for $15 BC campaign which presented a petition with over 56,500 signatures to the BC legislature on Wednesday.

As we approach mid-March, there are more ways for you to get involved:

  • Attend the second part of our Speaker Series, a panel discussion on economic inequality with Tamara Vrooman, President and CEO of Vancity Credit Union, Janet Austin, CEO of the YWCA Metro Vancouver, and Anita Huberman, CEO of the Surrey Board of Trade. 
  • Join our Election Campaign Webinar to learn how we can fight for good jobs and good policy.
  • Keep the momentum going from our Poverty Free BC Action Week.
  • Give input into the federal government’s consultations about developing and implementing a Canadian Poverty Reduction Strategy.

Stay tuned for more election materials later this month!
