Join us for a planning and organizing discussion of anti-poverty activists from across the city on Saturday, June 12th.  Send a representative or two from your organization.  Encourage any youth or resident groups, or agencies working to end poverty to join us at the forum.
A COMMUNITY PLANNING FORUM FOR ANTI-POVERTY GROUPS IN TORONTO
Some steps forward, but many more to go:
How can we push ahead and get real change?
Join with other community groups across the city fighting to
end poverty; share what’s happening in your community; hear
what others are doing; connect with new ideas; explore new
opportunities to open the way for change.

The meeting will be at the North York Memorial Hall at the North York Centre from 10 AM-3 PM (5110 Yonge St., near the library–North York Centre subway station).

We will be looking at where people are being actively engaged around issues related to poverty, different strategies for fighting poverty, ways in which we can help each other achieve our local goals and broader successes, and how we might communicate better with new and existing allies.

***Please let me know how many will be attending, so we can plan for refreshments / child care.
