In Common Houston - Bridges Out of Poverty Workshop
Please join us on Saturday, August 24, 2019 from 8:30 AM - 3:00 PM for the Bridges Out of Poverty workshop hosted by St. John the Divine Episcopal Church in Houston.
The one-day workshop introduces participants to a comprehensive approach for understanding the dynamics that cause and maintain poverty from the individual to the systemic levels. Bridges Out of Poverty uses the lens of economic class and provides concrete tools and strategies for a community to prevent, reduce, and alleviate poverty; it is designed to provide a broad overview of concepts.
As a result of the workshop, participants will:
~ Gain a better understanding of poverty and its causes
~ Analyze and have a better understanding of their environment, circumstances, and role in society
~ Learn to build relationships of mutual respect with people from other environments and classes
