CTS Faith and Action Spring Conference (virtual)
April 15, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Join us on April 15 to be a part of that effort, as faith communities, nonprofit organizations, concerned individuals and people living in poverty gather to discuss, learn about and shape solutions that increase opportunities for residents throughout the city.
Keynoting the Conference will be national poverty-mitigation leader Nisha Patel, an advocate for “data-driven and heart-led” approaches to increasing mobility from poverty. The former Managing Director of Narrative Change and National Initiatives with Robin Hood and Executive Director of the US Partnership on Mobility from Poverty, Patel will share her thoughts on pursuing solutions in collaboration with people who have lived experience in poverty.
Patel’s keynote will lead into a conversation in which Faith & Action Grant recipients and local residents who have lived in poverty share their journeys, perspectives, and vision for lasting change.
Christian Theological Seminary, with the support from the Mike and Sue Smith Family Fund and Lumina Foundation, is facilitating the Faith & Action Project Spring Conference to inspire collaboration among individuals, faith communities, nonprofits and government agencies to reduce area poverty.
