Parent Advocacy Network launches a postcard campaign

Join our Postcard Campaign for BC Education Funding! 


The Select Standing Committee on Finance & Government Services found that K-12 Education Funding remains a top priority for British Columbians. 

The Parent Advocacy Network (PAN) in conjunction with Families Against Cuts to Education (FACE), has therefore started a postcard campaign targeting the BC Government. 

Parents on your Charles Dickens PAC are both founding and active members of PAN.

The goal of the campaign is to deliver thousands of postcards declaring “I stand with the Standing Committee” to the Minister of Education, Mike Bernier, in time for him to make his New Year's Resolutions. The postcard includes the Committee’s list of recommendations for K-12 funding as well as a space to offer up your own comments.  

In addition to passionate discussion on social media and support from many schools in Vancouver, PAN has already received numerous requests for postcards from around the province. 

We hope that you will join us in sharing postcards with fellow parents/guardians, family and friends to collect as many postcards as possible: In early January, we will make a bulk delivery and a big statement to the Minister of Education demonstrating that parents will be holding his government accountable to adequately fund public education.  

Here’s how you can participate and help make a change!



  • If you are within the Dickens community, please drop off bundles of completed postcards to the personal residence at 744 East 14th Avenue. 
  • Alternatively, if you live in Vancouver, you can bring completed postcards in person to our January PAN meeting at the Tipper Restaurant (backroom) on January 4, 2016 at 7 p.m.
Thank you for participating in our Postcard Campaign 
Together we can make a difference!
