Poverty activists go high tech

NUNATSIAQ NEWS

Anti-poverty activists in Nunavut and the rest of the North have banded together on the Internet to pool their resources and plan how to help Northerners in need.

Mary Ellen Thomas, an activist in Iqaluit, said the new e-mail group will serve as a place where people can swap information and ideas on how to combat poverty in the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut.

She said the site will help activists who often work alone, instead of teaming up with like-minded people or organizations.

Anyone interested in subscribing to the list-serve can find more information at http://www.povnet.org, or e-mail povnet@povnet.org.
