Join the call for a BC poverty reduction plan and spread the word before May 12
The CCPA-BC Office is part of a province-wide group calling for a BC Poverty Reduction Plan with legislated targets and timelines. As the election gets closer, we really want to make sure that all BC political parties get the message that British Columbians want action on poverty.
You can add your voice to the call in the following ways:
- Sign your name to the petition for individuals calling for a legislated BC poverty reduction plan.
- Tell all of your friends, family, colleagues and networks about the petition and encourage them to sign it. You can add a button or banner to your website or newsletter using the resources here: http://bcpovertyreduction.ca/?page_id=470
- If you are a member of an organization that would like to join the list of signatories to the open letter, please contact the BC Poverty Reduction Committee at: info [at] bcpovertyreduction [dot] ca. You can view the open letter and a list of signatory organizations here: http://bcpovertyreduction.ca
