Social Justice: What we do
- We stay focused on poverty issues that include affordable housing, adequate social assistance rates, adequate minimum wage/living wage and income inequality
- We participate in local networks on local poverty issues while forming meaningful relationships with those with lived experience of poverty.
- We keep at it for the long haul so that we can build capacity in terms of knowledge and understanding of the issues and develop more effective advocacy skills
- We combine education with options for political advocacy
- We plan events that are more than ‘talking heads’, that engage the heart, through the use of the arts and experiential learning. For example, our involvement in the Stitching the Social Safety net project where participants had the opportunity to create something, and our Food Bank event that provided experiences to reflect upon.
