The Greater Edmonton Alliance’s listening campaign culminated in a decision to organize, equip and support teams in taking effective action on the highest priority problems that emerged in the process.
- The Living Incomes Action Team will focus on efforts to increase access to job-training, expand the number of living wage jobs, and increase income supports for those unable to work.
- The Mental Health Action Team will focus on increasing access to mental health and addiction recovery resources as well as other ways to reduce adverse stress.
- The Community Building and Member Engagement Team will focus on increasing participation in faith, labour, and civil sector organizations and assisting them in building respectful relationships and a strong sense of community.
The efforts will prioritize ways of reducing discrimination and engaging/supporting the city’s most vulnerable populations in all of the organization’s internal and external actions.
Working together, we can and will make a real difference on these problems … if people like YOU step up to contribute your ideas, experiences, and energy.
