The Fulcrum Project is a group of people that met at ?The Future of Poverty? series held at SFU Harbour Centre over two years ago. Since then, they have been working on four initiatives to undo the misconceptions that surround those living in poverty, and to ensure that ending poverty is at the forefront of the election campaigns for our Provincial Election. They are simply a group of people wanting to do something. The four projects are our website, our art shows, this CD, and a community discussion on poverty planned for April 2-3.

This CD has been a long time in the making. No one had any experience or contacts within the music world ... or so it felt at the beginning. Most of this CD was put together from people volunteering their time and talent to get it made and a lot of ?I know someone who knows someone who can ...? It has been as grass roots as making a CD can get!

BCTF?s Social Justice Advisory Committee generously provided the money needed to have the CD reproduced.
