Up For Debate MB
August 21, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
With less than two months until the provincial election, supporters of Up for Debate MB are calling upon the provincial party leaders to make real commitments to end poverty, end gender based violence, and support women’s rights and equality-seeking organizations. Gender equality is not a fringe issue and a democratic debate is an opportunity to hear how the parties will lead transformative change for all Manitobans
