Watch the Poverty Forum Video
If you missed the half-day Poverty Forum that we co-hosted with Partners for Our Children in May 2016, you can watch it on YouTube
now. It features a range of speakers and panelists talking about policy solutions for addressing income inequality and poverty in our state.
Come join our fun, hard-wording team of people who are passionate about social and economic justice! We're seeking a Betty Jane Narver Policy Fellow, a Development Manager, and a Policy Analyst/Senior Policy Analyst.
