We can change the world, one conversation at a time. Since launching the All Together Now! campaign five years ago, our Champions for Change have talked to thousands of Canadians about rising income inequality and the four things we need to stop it: good jobs, quality public services, tax fairness and labour rights.
Please tell us how many conversations you've had. If somebody you were talking to said something particularly memorable -- funny, smart, or poignant -- tell us that, too.

Keep talking people about income inequality and fair taxation because this affects us all. We all have the responsibility to educate and communicate and hopefully we as the people in this country will be the difference! I'm truly feeling a huge sense of accomplishment today!" (NS)|
