Who we are
Join Together Alberta is a campaign initiated and implemented by a coalition of groups that are jointly advocating for proper funding for vital public services in Alberta. Members of the JTA coalition include labour organizations, student and senior organizations and a wide range of groups representing other grassroots and community concerns.
All of the participating organizations share deep concerns about the impacts that cuts to public services will have on individuals, families and communities within Alberta.
They also share a belief that best way forward for Alberta is to embrace a high-road approach to our future — one that focuses on smart investments in people, communities and the economy — as opposed to a low-road approach —one that focuses on cutting spending and leaving individuals, families and communities to increasingly fend for themselves.
