The Alberta Child Poverty Report is a yearly publication that highlights the plight of children and youth living without the resources to thrive and grow into healthy adults. Every year, the Child Poverty Report advocates for better social services and governmental assistance to give all children the opportunities they deserve. This year, we are so pleased to have students from the University of Alberta, University of Manitoba, and Concordia University contributing their considerable expertise and energy. Join us for a lunch and learn on presentations in the beloved pecha kucha style, an engaging and exciting format where diverse topics will be covered.
The Alberta Child Poverty Report is a collaboration between the Edmonton Social Planning Council, the Alberta College of Social Workers (ACSW), and Public interest Alberta (PIA). It is part of the Campaign 2000 coalition, a national movement that sought to end child poverty by the year 2000. Obviously, Canada failed to meet this objective and much work remains before poverty for children and youth is eradicated.
Stay tuned for what is sure to be a compelling and informative lunch and learn session!
