The Tapping the Groundswell conference is taking place in Powell River on April 1st and 2nd.

Some issues covered will include homelessness, and child poverty.

Brown says this year’s conference will build off ideas that came up at last year’s Groundwell event.

Brown says there will be guest speakers, including Dr. Elsie Paul and Adrian Montani from First Call Child and Youth Advocacy Coalition.
