Make Poverty History Manitoba (MPHM) is a coalition committed to changing public policy to achieve a Manitoba without poverty.
The coalition is a multi-sectoral collaborative coalition representing business, education, student, youth, Aboriginal, newcomer, labour, women’s, disability, urban, rural, and northern communities.
The diverse membership of MPHM reflects the diverse populations most vulnerable to poverty. We recognize that these populations include women, children, persons with disabilities, Indigenous people, and recent immigrants.
