National Public Issue Webinar Series - 2018 “Economic Vulnerability and Poverty


Research shows that when we dissolve social, economic, and cultural barriers among ourselves, communities become unified, and its members stand together in times of conflict, disaster, and other threats. When communities unify, safety increases, conflict decreases, and families thrive. The lines that separate us begin to blur. This webinar targets those professionals who wish to increase their understanding and their work in populations where poverty is endemic and persistent. Together we will build our own self-awareness about why we may turn away from people who are not like us. The more we understand about ourselves, the closer it brings us to learn about those who are different on many levels: rich or poor, young or old, with different educational backgrounds, or from different origins.
