Today, many United Church people are taking part in vigils across Canada, lighting a candle in support of a guaranteed livable income. If you took part in a vigil, please share your photos on social media using the hashtags #UCCanlivableincome and #guaranteedlivableincome. If you are at home, share a picture of a lit candle to show your support (using the same hashtags).
There are more action steps you can take, like writing to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Chrystia Freeland. You can find email templates and other resources on our Guaranteed Livable Income webpage.
