Join A Wider Circle on November 8, 2017 for The 2017 Forum on Ending Poverty: Creating Solutions and Positive Change. The forum will feature morning presentations and panels by leaders in the field of poverty eradication, followed by an afternoon poverty simulation. National leaders such as D. Watkins (author of The Beast Side and The Cook Up) and C. Nicole Mason (author of Born Bright: A Young Girl’s Journey from Nothing to Something in America) will share their important views on poverty and how we can better solve it. We will also hear from people currently seeking to rise out of poverty, nonprofit leaders building effective solutions, and we will finish the day with a compelling and instructive poverty simulation.

The event will focus on ideas and innovations that will catalyze the movement to end poverty – and bring more expedient solutions to our neighbors in need:
