Be a voice for change. You can be a spokesperson for all of those faces that are forgotten or ignored in our region. Support Living Wage employers, advocate for better access to mental health supports, speak up for better funding for a hopelessly underfunded sector, and support initiatives that bring more affordable housing to Niagara.
Look UP! You never know what the person next to you is going through. Whether they are in front of you in line at the grocery store, losing their patience with their child in the parking lot or even calling you a name as you walk down the street. You don’t know the journey they are on, so be kind. It seems like a simple request, but it isn’t always easy. Try to be kind wherever you go because that person is someone’s daughter, friend, father… they are someone.
