We are a volunteer-run coalition. Funds raised in past years have helped to contribute to advocacy, research, events, rallies, and campaigns. Our coalition has successfully raised awareness about the serious issues of poverty that affect over 100,000 people in Manitoba.

Thanks to supporters, we have advocated for a provincial poverty reduction plan, a livable basic needs benefit, housing, childcare, mental health supports, a $15 minimum wage, and more. As well, last year’s funds raised helped support the Winnipeg Without Poverty campaign, calling for a comprehensive City of Winnipeg poverty plan.

Join us as we celebrate the successes of our community coming together, and look toward building our movement for change.
