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.
Coquitlam. This is my first year participating in the Welfare Food Challenge and after watching my colleagues and friends participate last year I know this week will not be easy. I work for a fantastic company called Vancity Credit Union as a Consultant for Process Simplicity. Along with that I’m lucky to have the opportunity to act as the Secretary for our Diversity and Inclusion Alliance and teach Financial Literacy through our Each One Teach One program.
This year it is important to me to participate fully in the challenge, not to only provide support through social media. I’m challenging myself to be a better advocate and a louder voice for those who are not heard.
I’m lucky this week is a choice because for so many it isn’t.
