Remember the other pair we chalked in Vancouver? Check it out here!
This was the text we chalked with that pair:

It’s Not Because I’m Lazy. It’s Because…


“I face multiple employment  barriers.”

“I was born into poverty.”

“I don’t have an address to put on my resume”

“They want a phone number to contact me, but I don’t have one.”

“I don’t own proper interview attire.”

“Nobody will give me a chance.”

“I don’t have the money to buy makeup.”

“People judge me for the way I look.”

“There is not enough affordable housing in THIS city.”

“I am not able to get the treatment I need.”
