Opportunity to Thrive
Every Edmontonian should have the opportunity to participate fully in our society. Unfortunately, there is a higher proportion of people of visible minority and Indigenous backgrounds experiencing poverty than other groups. That’s a problem we need to address.
A strong, thriving city brings everyone to the table and gives everyone the same opportunities.
“We cannot solve the problem of poverty ... unless we honestly unravel the complex and continuing connection between poverty and race.” Alan Jenkins
