TVO Profiles The Stop’s Election Education Sessions


With the 2018 Ontario election just around the corner, it’s critical for us to come together for a province that is equitable, inclusive and fair.

In April, The Stop hired Pauline Bryant, a graduate of our Community Advocacy Training program, to organize a series of civic engagement and voter education events. Pauline invited community groups like Put Food in the Budget, TTC Riders, $15 and Fairness, and ACORN to lead discussions on issues like affordable transit, the minimum wage, and social assistance rates—particularly, how they impact people living with poverty.

TVO journalist Michal Stein spoke with Pauline about how critical it is for politicians and community organizations to prioritize marginalized people in the political process, and the very real barriers that prevent people from engaging in elections.
