Rally to Raise the Rates

On October 17th, 2007, the United Nations Day for the Eradication of Poverty, Robyn Benson, REVP Prairie Region, joined the Social Planning Council, Manitoba Leaders and community members on the steps of the Manitoba Legislative Building to speak out against poverty at the Rally to Raise the Rates.

The rally was held to call for a raise for the nearly 60,000 Manitobans who receive welfare - many of whom live on $6/day.
