“Change starts with people, not dollars” with Elizabeth MacMillan


The Sault Ste. Marie provincial and federal NDP Riding Associations are pleased to invite all members of the public to the first event in their new speaker series.

On Thursday, March 5, all are invited to join us at 6:30pm at the Soup Kitchen Community Centre to hear from local activist Elizabeth MacMillan.

Elizabeth has long been an active member of the community, working hard to address at a grassroots level many of the issues facing our city and those in it. She knows that throughout our community, there are already many actions being taken that are changing the way we see the world, but there is far more work to be done.

Elizabeth will be sharing with us her thoughts on the actions that we, as everyday people, can take to change the way the system is working for us. She believes that the payoff of those actions will be far greater than just a dollar amount – as she puts it, “change starts with people, not dollars.” Elizabeth is a young mother, an experienced community researcher, earned her B.A. by 30, and has knowledge in community development, building social enterprises, networking beyond social and economic barriers, parenting teenage boys, and of course, gardening.

Light refreshments will be provided. There is no cost for admission, but we will be accepting donations for both the Soup Kitchen Community Centre and the Riding Associations for those who wish to make them.
