Engaging Election Candidates through the use of Infographics
New infographics provide insight on the breadth and depth of income, housing and food insecurity in Grey and Bruce counties. They succinctly state why each are an important issue for the community, and provide recommendations for including people with lived experience in solving community problems. Candidates were encouraged to clarify how the information would contribute to their campaign and to identify community solutions.
This approach highlights poverty-related issues for candidates and residents and invited constructive conversations around solutions.
The education campaign won't stop once the new Council is elected. Grey Bruce Poverty Task Force's new series of infographics will support action groups to continue poverty reduction education in the community and with councillors throughout the year.
