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!
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.
Together, let's make poverty an election issue!
Yours in Solidarity,
Make Poverty History Steering Committee
