We are an alliance of individuals from a variety of economic and social situations who strive to end poverty within our society by:

  • practicing solidarity between those who have enough and those who do not have enough

  • learning from one another through experience, reflection, and action

  • applying direct political pressure to all three levels of government

  • a personal commitment to group values and actions


While we partner with local anti-poverty community groups and labour unions, AAP is a unique group because we practice our beliefs about justice in solidarity directly with the poor, and include a wealth redistribution model within our group.

Principles of Action:

  1. The principles of non-violent action to which members should commit themselves for one year are:

  2. Participation in political action and/or personal and direct advocacy for and with others to eliminate poverty

  3. Personal redistribution of wealth within the group

  4. Public unanimity on positions taken by AAP as a group

  5. Commitment to non-violent action.

  6. Willingness to collaborate and network with other groups and individuals on specific projects and events, in an effort to build a movement to eradicate poverty.

  7. AAP will not seek or accept funding from any level of government.
