How Do We Put Poverty and Homelessness Back on the Political Map?

Tuesday, June 21 – 7:00 p.m.
Project H.O.M.E. / Kate’s Place
1929 Sansom Street

In last year’s national elections, issues of poverty and homelessness were virtually ignored by most candidates and voters. Despite the fact that poverty rates remain unconscionably high and homelessness is on the increase in many communities, these issues are barely part of our current political discourse. We cannot make serious progress on solving poverty and homelessness until we generate greater political will and vision.

* How do we put poverty and homeless back on the political agenda of this nation?
* What new communication strategies do we need to reach a broader audience?
* How can the religious community do a better job of raising these as urgent moral and religious issues?

Join us for an evening of timely and critical discussion.
