Would you like your elected city officials to invest in programs to reduce poverty?
The Toronto city budget process is underway from November 2017 to January 2018. Since 2018 is a municipal election year, city Councillors will be listening closely to their constituents.
The Peace and Justice Strategy Team invites you to join the Anti-Poverty Working Group to learn about the budget process, how to make deputations, and how to speak to your own local Councillor. This is an action-oriented group where you can take concrete steps to shape how and where city money is spent.
If interested and available to attend a half day workshop in late October or early November, please email us at email@example.com. Anti-Poverty Working Group Members needed by October 15th.
We are especially interested in MCC members who live in Wards 6, 16, 17, 18, 23, 26, 35, 43, and 44, but are all welcome and invited. You can make a difference!
