educate our community. ADVOCATE FOR CHANGE. Take action.
The Lived Experience Advisory Group (LEAG) is focused on bringing a lived experience voice to the work being done to reduce the challenges of poverty in our community. The group’s work includes bringing awareness to the challenges of poverty; advocating for poverty reduction efforts; and engaging in projects to reduce the daily impacts of poverty on our community. Together, the group strives to have a strong voice, to build bridges, increase knowledge, form new relationships, and inform on policy to eliminate poverty in Chatham-Kent.
