Changing the Poverty Roadmap Panel


A Panel Conversation

Community Foundation donors and Mid-Southerners alike want to know: how do we alleviate the poverty that so profoundly affects Greater Memphis? There are no quick fixes, but there are outstanding organizations working on the front lines that are recalibrating how they approach the work to serve and empower people living in poverty. Hear from panelists about innovative ways that they—and we together—can create opportunity and break the cycle of poverty.
