Let's shift the election conversation

On October 17th, the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, join a chorus of voices telling candidates that #WeNeedAPlan to end poverty in Canada

Poverty is an election issue – let’s get the candidates talking! 

Tell Canada's leaders that we need a national poverty plan.

We have 8 days to gather 250 people who are willing to join our THUNDERCLAP. If we reach our goal, then simultaneously, on October 17th at 11:30 am EST, this message will go out across all the social media networks of the people who signed up:

“I think 4.9 million people living in poverty in Canada is shameful, don't you? Join us at chewonthis.ca #WeNeedAPlan http://thndr.me/3rsYnX”

Let's get the topic of poverty trending on social media and reach thousands on their Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr accounts.

Tell Canadians that we need a national poverty plan.

Together, let's make poverty an election issue!

Yours in Solidarity,

Make Poverty History Steering Committee
