Learn about world poverty next Tuesday
On Tuesday, April 23, from 1:00-2:00 p.m. in the WD 4th floor ballroom, the Global
Poverty Project (www.globalpovertyproject.com) will be on campus to present "1.4 Billion Reasons."
Global Poverty Project (GPP) is an organization that aims to end extreme poverty within our generation. A core
component of their work is education - they are spreading the word about poverty issues
and building up a movement around ending it. They are currently on the road for four
months for the 2013 Spring Tour, bringing their hour-long presentation on extreme
poverty, 1.4 Billion Reasons, to campuses and communities across the US.
About the presentation:
1.4 Billion Reasons is an engaging presentation that explains the reality facing the 1.4 billion people
currently living in extreme poverty around the world, and provides students with the
information and tools they need to take effective action against extreme poverty. They aim to answer five questions about extreme poverty:
1. What is extreme poverty?
2. Can we do anything about it?
3. What are the barriers to ending extreme poverty?
4. Why should we care?
5. What can we do?
This event is being sponsored by CSCC Students for Peace and Justice, and the Department
of Social Sciences.
