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.
North Vancouver. I am a recently graduated student of Psychology and Communications and am involved with the Powell Street Festival Society and the Japanese Canadian Young Leaders of Vancouver. Living an active lifestyle in this city is important to me and being privileged enough to be adequately nourished is something I feel that I and others can so easily take for granted. By participating in this challenge I hope to help shine some light on the inequities and imbalances many Vancouverites and British Columbians many be unaware of. I expect to be super hungry, tired, and cranky by the end of this week but am excited to learn from and participate with so many other passionate and positive individuals!
