Thanks to supporters, volunteers, and endorsing organizations, our campaign for a Winnipeg Without Poverty has put poverty on the City of Winnipeg’s agenda.
The City has taken some very crucial steps toward poverty reduction – City Council will soon vote on a report written by the city’s public service on what the City of Winnipeg is doing to reduce poverty and what more it could do. We know that this report is already making a difference and we can’t stop here!
We need to show City Council and the Mayor that there is strong community support for a second phase of this report that includes city-wide poverty reduction goals and an action plan to achieve them. This is an exciting time for Winnipeg.
Working together, we can make poverty history.
