Rally to Make Poverty History

Join us Thursday, April 23, 12 pm at the Manitoba Legislature. We will ask the finance minister to walk a mile in the shoes of people living in poverty. We are asking for measures to help end poverty in this year’s provincial budget:

  1. Increase the housing budget by $30 million to adequately fund existing commitments to increase supply without reducing other important housing initiatives including the existing social housing stock.
  2. Increase the maximum Rent Assist benefit level to equal 75% of median market rent.

Please invite your friends, colleagues and share this event with your contacts on Facebook and other social media: facebook.com/events/412228802290566/
