Stopping the war on the poor with the Raise the Rates campaign

On March 22, 2014 we marched with Ontario Coalition Against Poverty and a bunch of other organizations and allies demanding the Liberal government in Ontario provide a living wage for all, raise welfare and disability rates and restore the special diet and community start-up benefits! At this Raise the Rates action, we led a workshop to the crowd and galvanized everyone to demand the Ontario government “Stop the War on the Poor and Raise the Rates Now”. At the doors of the Ontario Liberal Convention we were loud, united, and couldn’t be ignored.
