What can be done to lift people out of poverty?

Our governments must invest in evidence-based solutions that tackle the issues leading people into poverty as well as those keeping people stuck in it.

All levels of government are morally and legally responsible for upholding the human rights of all who live here, which includes ensuring their basic needs are met.
