Chew on This! in Sarnia

Thank you for making ChewOnThis! a huge success!

ChewOnThis! 2016 was a great success thanks to the hard work of organizers and communities across the country! We had over 60 groups participating – in every province and territory – calling on Minister Duclos to include those with lived experience of poverty in meaningful consultations in the development of a comprehensive, rights-based Canadian Poverty Reduction Strategy.

At our event on Parliament Hill, we had a great group of volunteers and staff from Canada Without Poverty and Citizens for Public Justice sharing our message. We had some media presence on the Hill, as well as a couple of MPs joining us.

As a follow up to ChewOnThis! Dignity for All will check in with Minister Duclos’ office to ensure that he is receiving the postcards and hearing the message we are sending.

A couple of things that you can do following on this:

Dignity for All will continue to work throughout the year to engage the public and advocate for a strong national anti-poverty plan. Thank you for your ongoing work toward this goal. We’re closer than ever to making it happen!
