Poverty Talks!

Lived experience guides the E4A strategy

Overview

Poverty Talks! officially joined Vibrant Communities Calgary in 2016 as an advisory group, offering insight into poverty reduction from a lived experience of poverty perspective.

International Day for the Eradication of Poverty

Poverty Talks! gathered with community members for the 2021 International Day for the Eradication of Poverty on October 17. Throughout the event, individuals shared personal stories of people with lived experience with a keynote address from Mayor Naheed Nenshi.

Poverty Talks! is working to create a better and deeper connected community for all. We are so grateful to all those who participated in the event. Special thanks to the Poverty Talks! Peer Connections Committee and the two co-hosts Hannah Gwynn and Franco Savoia.

Community Conversations

Poverty Talks! hosted community conversations about the Levers of Change. This is what they heard.
