EndPoverty Edmonton – Count Yourself In

EndPoverty Edmonton is a task force chaired by Mayor Don Iveson and Bishop Jane Alexander and is composed of 18 leaders and stakeholders representing a broad array of communities. The vision is to eliminate poverty in Edmonton within a generation (roughly 30 years) and the task force’s mandate is to develop a long-term plan to achieve that vision.

The task force has introduced a feature on its website called Count Me In. You are invited to sign up to receive updates and share your ideas on ending poverty. It’s a way to show your support for the initiative and help shape its recommendations.

You can also follow @EndPovertyYEG on Twitter.
