About Raise the Rates
RAISE THE RATES is a coalition of community groups and organizations concerned with the level of poverty and homelessness in British Columbia.
Vancouver. I am a 4th year undergrad student at UBC. As students, we often feel like we have it tough – and some of us do. However, the reality is that, personally, I have always had enough for that emergency cafe sandwich or Starbucks coffee between classes. I am taking up this challenge in order to experience how it feels to be unable to afford not only these luxury items but even the most basic necessities required to live healthily.
