Faithful Citizenship Forums 2015

Percent povertyIn 2015, the four statewide partners held a second round of regional forums–five in Milwaukee and three in the north–focused on the theme Alleviating Poverty: Who’s Responsible?  The forums began with PowerPoint presentations with an overview of poverty in Wisconsin. Local religious leaders shared theological reflections on the role of individual and collective responsibility in alleviating poverty.  Finally, forum participants began a process to develop broad goals for poverty alleviation in our state.
