ABOUT US

 

Here at Alliance Against Poverty (AAP), we strive to end poverty within our society. We are individuals from a variety of economic and social situations, who partner with local anti-poverty community groups and labour unions.

 

Since our beginnings in 2009, we’ve been driven by the same ideas we initially founded our group upon:

  1.  we would not let our actions or integrity be compromised by any official funding;

  2. we were committed to helping build a broad anti-poverty coalition defined by grass-roots participation;

  3. we included within the new movement a strong component of direct action; and

  4. perhaps most uniquely, we added a wealth-sharing component to our monthly meetings.
