Community pressure works to convince governments to take action, so we encourage you to talk to your MLA and MP and tell them you are concerned about child poverty in BC and you want them to act on the recommendations in the Report Card.
First Call sent letters to all BC MPs and MLAs to share the results from our BC Child Poverty Report Card. You can read the letters here: Letter to BC MPs on BC Child Poverty Report Card and Letter to BC MLAs on BC Child Poverty Report Card.
The BC Poverty Reduction Coalition has prepared some great provincial resources, including ways you can take to urge government to act on poverty in our province, and everything you need to know to participate in the ongoing poverty reduction strategy consultations.
We need a lot of public pressure to push our elected representatives to take bold steps, help ensure that our governments put children and youth first!
