Chew On This – Dignity and Poverty

Submit your stories of advocacy and or photos and the Bulletin may share your actions!

 

Get involved in the Chew On This! campaign.

Here is a story of advocacy by survivors that reaches the public outside the “mental health stigma” world!

October 17th is the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. Chew on This! marks this important day each year with our nation-wide event, drawing attention to poverty in Canada and calling for action through a national plan to end poverty.

This year, Chew on This! is more important than ever!

The federal government has just released Opportunity for All, Canada’s first poverty reduction strategy. While we’re pleased to have a strategy to build on, much more work is needed to achieve our campaign’s goal of poverty eradication.dignity for all logo - campaign for a poverty free Canada

Our postcard message this year, directed to the Prime Minister, will call for a plan that is strengthened, legislated, and fully-funded in Budget 2019. We do not want this opportunity lost!

It’s easy to organize an event in your town, at your school, or with your community group:

  1. Find volunteers. It’s good to have at least six.
  2. Pick a location. Hand out your materials in a spot with high pedestrian traffic. It works great to host events at schools, faith centres, or community centres. Your event can be as big or small as you’d like.
  3. Find apples. We can help with this – groups have also used local food, like Bannock, which works great.
  4. Order your materials using the form below. We’ll provide free postcards, magnets, buttons and bags. Your orders will also include organizer information to help with your event.
  5. Pack your bags.
  6. Be a part of a growing movement across Canada!

For more information, please contact Michèle Biss.
