Next month, Catholic Charities will host the 2011 Poverty Summit in Fort Worth, TX and the Alliance is proud to be a part of this important conversation including people from across the country discussing ways to alleviate and eliminate poverty.
As their website states, the Poverty Summit aims to (we’re quoting here):
- Inspire active participation in a national movement to reduce poverty in America,
- Re-imagine the way America addresses poverty,
- Strategically identify, design and implement innovative and measureable tactics towards the common goal of reducing poverty in America.
The Alliance’s own president and CEO Nan Roman will join a national panel of experts on poverty reduction including David Beckmann of Bread for the World and Andrea Levere of the Corporation for Enterprise Development (CFED) to take place on Monday, September 19. Other sessions included in this year’s summit include breakout sessions on a variety of topics and keynote addresses including Mark Shriver of Save the Children and Rev. Larry Snyder of Catholic Charities USA.
