The Winnipeg Foundation, in partnership with Make Poverty History Manitoba, invites you to join a dynamic and interactive Vital Conversation about envisioning a city without poverty.

United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal No. 1 is No Poverty by 2030. Ending poverty is no small task. We must recognize poverty is complex, multi-layered, and interconnected. We can be successful when all citizens can see humanity in the face of poverty.

Hear about the progressive actions of End Poverty Edmonton, from its Co-Chair Bishop Jane Alexander. Discover the collaborative efforts of the anti-poverty movement in Winnipeg. Share your ideas about making poverty history.
