Event description

Description

The Faith & Action Project at Christian Theological Seminary kicks off its second year with a panel discussion featuring national speakers on poverty. It promises to raise challenging questions and offer innovative solutions.

  • Poverty and housing: Matthew Desmond, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City, which follows eight low-income families as they struggle to keep a roof over their heads

  • Poverty and education: Deborah Bial, the MacArthur “genius grant” recipient who founded the Posse Foundation, a renowned college access and youth leadership program

  • Poverty and hope: Dr. Valeria Maholmes, author of Fostering Resilience and Well-being in Children and Families in Poverty: Why Hope Still Matters


UIndy President Rob Manuel will moderate the discussion, which is sponsored by Central Indiana Community Foundation.

The Faith & Action Project at Christian Theological Seminary connects, inspires and empowers faith communities and others to implement effective solutions for people confronting poverty. Through annual public events and grants, the Faith & Action Project seeks to ignite a collaborative, interfaith and inclusive movement for well-being and justice in our community. This project is made possible by a gift from the Mike and Sue Smith Family Fund.
