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 25 year old woman living in Vancouver, BC, on Unceded Coast Salish Territories. I love my friends, family, and like most people, the things that make me feel grounded and whole. For me, that is reading, listening to the same music over and over again in different circumstances, sitting with nostalgia even when it feels uncomfortable, and whatever else. A couple years ago, I completed my BA at the University of Victoria (English with a minor in Political Science). I live with my grandma and my cousin, and we talk. I play soccer, and I changed my number this year, which is weird, but okay.
I work part-time as Program Coordinator at Enterprising Women Making Art, which is a program of Atira Women’s Resource Society. I am taking this challenge because I feel like I need a reality check about what welfare might actually kinda sorta feel like, and this is happening. Plus, I sit on the Advocacy and Outreach Committee of Powell Street Festival Society, and we had a meeting recently where I agreed I’d take this challenge. I expect to be asking my grandma for advice.
