The Keep The Promise (KTP) campaign (2013-2015) was organized by friends of June Callwood in partnership
with Campaign 2000 and the Canadian Teachers’ Federation. It engaged over 2500 children across Canada in the
work of ending child poverty in Canada, and through them reached over 12,500 adults including members of all
federal political parties.
Many groups and organizations jumped on board to support the KTPcampaign. Together, they represent a
powerful network of advocates who will continue to work for an end to child poverty in the years to come.The
campaign’s lead partners, the Canadian Teachers’ Federation and Campaign 2000, are deeply committed to continuing the work, to ensuring
that KTP participants stay active, to disseminating KTP resources and to engaging new participants in this
We have published an illustrated booklet that both tells the story of the campaign and is a call to action.
It summarizes the key issues and provides links to many resources for children and adults who want to be
engaged. Written in plain language in French and English,it is accessible to readers of all ages 10 and up.
The e-version can be found online and hard copies are available for $4.00 each from Campaign 2000.
