With 2 out of 5 kids living at or near the poverty level, Charlotte has its own third-world poverty problems. This workshop bridges the gap.

About this Event

You don’t have to go to Asia, Africa or South America…we have third-world poverty problems here in Charlotte, North Carolina. 2 out of 5 kids in Charlotte right now, live at or near the poverty level. Poverty hurts more than just the impoverished. It hurts us all.

It’s Time to Change the Way We See Each Other

We are the relationship builders, the class breakers, and the economic growers. We are the culture developers, the community mobilizers and the humanity “empowerers.”

Be the Change You Want to See

The more you understand, the more you know what to do.

This workshop will explore the mindsets and patterns of each economic class in order to gain perspective, learn skills and work together as a community, so all of us in Charlotte can live well.

Workshop Part 2: Saturday, October 12 – 9am-4pm

Location: Christian Faith Center Charlotte, 7910 Idlewild Road, Charlotte, NC 28212
