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. Originally from Karachi, Pakistan, I’ve been living Vancouver for the past six years and have come to call it home. Social justice is very important to me and I believe that inadequate welfare rates are an infringement on human rights. Coming from Pakistan, it saddens me that such a developed country continues to marginalize its people. It is truly unacceptable how little is being done to alleviate poverty and to support those who need it most.
I hope that my participation in the Welfare Challenge helps highlight the need for this work and ultimately leads to a much overdue increase of social assistance rates in BC.
