by Daniel Kitts Monday November 5, 2012

TVO is taking part in "Why Poverty?" -- a cross-media event reaching more than 500 million people around the world. As part of that, The Agenda will be producing content on air, online, and via social media throughout the coming month. 

And we want your help to better understand how poverty manifests itself in Ontario. Today, on our Facebook page and our Twitter account, we asked: what does poverty look like in your community? 

You can help us in many ways. You can post a comment here in this blog post; you can add your thoughts to the thread we started on our Facebook page; you can send a reply to our Twitter account using the hashtag #whypoverty; or you can send us a photo to All photos will be posted to our Pinterest page. If you do send us a photo, please include your name, your community, and a brief description of the image and why it relates to the theme of poverty.
