“We must bridge the gap between communities. Connecting those who experience poverty and those who are not, is vital to have honest conversations about poverty and to galvanize a movement to end it. Through our connections that we build, we recognize our shared humanity and build empathy and understanding. With empathy and understanding, we can commit to creating a fair and abundant life for all of us.”
