The Poverty Free Action Team is a space for everyone to share, learn, and put it all into practice! We meet on the last Wednesday of the month from 6:30-8:30 pm. Please note we will be adjusting the date of our March meeting from the usual day. It will be March 18. The Action Team offers a chance to hear presentations from members of the BC Poverty Reduction Coalition, engage in discussions and workshops about how to take action, and access resources so YOU can help make change happen!
Next Action Team meeting:
Wednesday March 18 at 6:30 pm
Due to COVID risk, we are doing this via conference call. Please phone 604-899-2339 and enter the code 1431818.
For new members, please call in at 6pm for an introduction and orientation. If phoning in to a conference call is inaccessible to you, please get in touch here!
Action Team members have organized a series of exciting events, from setting up information tables at forums and festivals to organizing the #rethinkgiving and Poverty Myth Busters campaigns, writing letters to the editor and op-eds (you can read some here, here, and here). There are still many things to accomplish, and with your involvement we’re sure we can make a difference!
You can read the Action Team’s Guiding Principles, which were formulated when the group first met.
