One of the exciting things that happened at the Canadian Social Forum was the announcement of a campaign to press the federal government to develop a poverty reduction strategy. It's called "dignity for all" and it was launched at the Forum. It is headed by Canada Without Poverty (formerly NAPO) and Citizens for Public Justice. It calls for adequate social spending to eliminate poverty, a national act to eliminate poverty, and a national strategy.
