I founded a social justice organization in 2009 ( STANDING TALL) The work involves a lot of research, networking , referrals and at times attending court proceedings. We also donate goods and services and help people get more of the same.
Over the years advocates have faced many obstacles and challenges. some are financial others have to do with barriers that exist in systems in the world today.
Discrimination is a big issues and poverty in communities a constant battle . In some of the case young children are very much at risk yet the system did not protect them or intervene to prevent any further harm to them. I have found the same when it comes to seniors and disabled people no supports in place .
The laws are not enforced and human rights violations are epidemic in many places so people have no real course of action and insult to injury seems to be the case.
Legal help is needed pro-bono for victims of violent crimes and other crimes yet there is none but criminal get free legal help and support
Is Canada running an adult day care for substance abuse as well at great cost to others and then reducing services for the children at risk and seniors etc
There is no funding for anyone else but the streets are filled with crime and people who abuse drugs and alcohol .
The ambulances are being used as a taxi service for people who just drank too much and pass out on street or benches
This is abuse of the system and then other people pay for this but do not get to utilize these services and resources are marginalized as is
IT IS time for change and people to take responsibility for their own lives and start building strong healthy communities
