Share your story and spark a movement


One of the goals of the poverty initiative is to humanize statistics and breakdown the stigmas associated with poverty. So we are telling the stories of those providing and receiving services with the hopes of challenging the negative and often false stereotypes attributed to poverty. Vlogs and video diaries made by our community partners, their constituents, our interns and YOU are a tool for combating the stigma of poverty and empowering others through the power of your voice and your story.
