As Anglicans, we do much of our social justice and advocacy work with other justice partners. Here are some of our key partners. We encourage you to support them as well.
25 in 5 Network for Poverty Reduction
A multi-sectoral network comprised of more than 100 provincial and Toronto-based organizations and individuals working on eliminating poverty. The Network calls for a Poverty Reduction Plan with a goal to reduce poverty in Ontario by 25 per cent in five years and 50 per cent in 10 years.
The Interfaith Social Assistance Reform Coalition (ISARC)
A coalition made up of Ontario’s major faith communities, which works to counter hunger, homelessness and poverty in Ontario through education and advocacy with MPPs and other key decision-makers.
Put Food in the Budget
The Put Food in the Budget campaign began in January 2009 in response to the Poverty Reduction Strategy of Premier McGuinty’s government, which did nothing to address the chronic hunger faced every month by thousands of people in Ontario. It is calling for an immediate increase of $100 per month for every adult receiving social assistance, and a fair and transparent way of setting social assistance rates.
A national movement with 85 member groups working to build public support for the 1989 House of Commons resolution to end child poverty in Canada by 2000.
Citizens for Public Justice (CPJ)
A non-partisan Christian organization working to bring justice into Canadian public affairs through research, education and advocacy.
LOFT Community Services
