To make big, systemic changes, like tackling the root causes of poverty, we need all levels of government on board. We launched the Let’s Do This initiative this week to help voters across the province remind their candidates that addressing poverty is a key issue for Albertans. If you weren’t able to join us for the launch event (in person or online), check out the video above for some highlights – or you can watch a full video of the event here.
We are already seeing success with this initiative – Albertans have started using their voice and writing to their candidates about addressing poverty. Thank you to everyone who has already contacted their candidates, and we hope that momentum will keep on building.
Over the next six weeks, we’ll be exploring each of the six Game Changers in more depth, with help from some local experts in each area. We hope this will help us all gain a better understanding of poverty in Alberta and pave the way for more effective conversations about how we can make things better.
