C.O.P.E. - Cost of Poverty Experience
Wednesday, July 24, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
According to the U.S. Census, over 15 percent of the American population lives below the poverty line. However, this statistic does not capture the true cost of poverty. It does not portray the individual stories that are so common among low-income neighborhoods, nor does it convey poverty's impact on families, businesses or communities.
The Cost of Poverty Experience is a glimpse into the lives of those living below the poverty line in our community. It is a offers insight into the obstacles that are faced, the decisions that are made, and the consequences that impact these families every day.
Attending this session is a powerful way to jumpstart higher impact methods for addressing some of the most challenging issues facing our community.
