Chew on This! 2021 is now underway!
October 17 is the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. Each year, CPJ co-leads the Chew on This! campaign, mobilizing people from across the country to call for ambitious federal action to end poverty in Canada.
With the legislation of the Poverty Reduction Act in 2019, the Government of Canada committed to a poverty reduction target of 50% of 2015 levels by the year 2030. Chew on This! organizers want to know, who are the 50% that will be included? Who are the 50% that will remain in poverty?
We can't end poverty without ending inequity. This year, join CPJ and Chew on This! organizers across the country, calling on MPs and Senators of all political stripes to sign our pledge committing to establish specific targets and timelines to ensure our anti-poverty efforts are effective and equitable.
