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.
My name is Jessica Pan. I am the Coordinator for the Surrey Poverty Reduction Coalition and Coordinator for the Children’s Partnership Surrey White Rock. I am participating in the challenge because it is appalling in our rich society to have people struggling to make it, not even having their basic needs of food and shelter met. We need to raise awareness that it is not ok that we tolerate poverty, especially for our children.
