Let’s Do This

A public education initiative for the 2019 Alberta general election.


we need to address poverty

“Let’s Do This” was a public awareness initiative for the 2019 Alberta general election by EndPovertyEdmonton. Its purpose was to educate Albertans about the impact of poverty on our province, highlight areas where we could take action on poverty, and help make poverty part of the conversation as the province got set to elect Alberta’s next MLAs.

As part of the initiative, the Let’s Do This website allowed Albertans to email their provincial election candidates directly about addressing poverty – voters can use a form to identify and contact their candidates.

The initiative included weekly video and blog content about each of the Game Changers. It was launched on March 5, 2019 by Stewardship Round Table Co-Chairs Michael Phair and Cheryl Whiskeyjack with honoured guest Mayor Don Iveson in attendance.
