Plywood + Bob Lupton
Thursday, November 17, 2011 from 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM (EST)
Leroy Barber, president of Mission Year and founder of Green My Hood will be interviewing Bob Lupton, author of Toxic Charity. Bob Lupton has invested almost 40 years of his life in inner-city Atlanta. In response to a call that he first felt while serving in Vietnam, he left a budding business career to work with delinquent urban youth. Bob and his wife Peggy and their two sons sold their suburban home and moved into the inner-city where they have lived and served as neighbors among those in need. Their life’s work has been the rebuilding of urban neighborhoods where families can flourish and children can grow into healthy adults.
Bob and Leroy will be discussing what makes charity toxic and what ought to be done to actually create life altering change.
