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. 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, October 30, 2019, 6:30-8:30pm
Location: 312 Main St (The building is at the corner of Main and Cordova and the entrance is on Cordova St.)
For new members, please come at 6pm for an introduction and orientation. Light dinner provided. Other supports to attend available upon request. 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.
The latest episode in the Action Team’s Talking Poverty podcast is available!
