We can change the world, one conversation at a time. Since launching the All Together Now! campaign in 2010, 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.
