Lever of Change – Justice

Lack of resources can be a barrier to addressing legal issues, while having legal issues can lead to a lack of resources.

Calgarians need the knowledge, resources and capability to understand and address their legal issues, and deserve a legal system that does not contribute to or cause poverty.

Enough for All is honored to have a working collaborative unique to other municipal poverty reduction strategies.  The Justice Sector Constellation was convened to provide recommendations on ways that justice-serving agencies, governments and law enforcement may improve access to the legal system by low-income Calgarians.  Since 2013, the Constellation has been working to implement those and other new recommendations.
