Campaigns and Issues

Send a message to your MLA: End poverty now

We Can’t Afford Poverty is a community art campaign to eradicate poverty in BC. You are encouraged to sign the We Can’t Afford Poverty Pledge to vote for the candidate in the 2017 BC election who commits to ending poverty, starting with raising social assistance.

Poverty costs British Columbians as much as $9 billion a year, and that’s nothing compared to the human costs of misery and suffering. Housing, homelessness and poverty is ranked the #1 issue in BC.

Act now! Start by taking the pledge. Then sign up for occasional action and meeting updates. You’re also encouraged to contact your BC MLA and ask them to take action.
