Capital District Truth Commission on Poverty in NYS – Thursday, July 13th, 5-8pm, 336 Broadway, Schenectady – Despite New York’s great wealth, more than 3 million New Yorkers live below the federal poverty line, and millions more struggle to make ends meet. In Schenectady, Albany, and Rensselaer counties, 4 in 10 households earn less than the cost of living. Why is this? How are individuals, families and our community affected, and what is being done to respond? How can we create a more just community in which all our neighbors can thrive? Join us on Thursday, July 13, to hear people directly affected by poverty and related injustices, direct service providers, advocates, faith leaders, and policy experts will reflect on these questions. RSVP at bit.ly/CapTruth or e-mail joep@focuschurches.net

This is part of the New Poor People’s Campaign, and an important part of statewide anti-poverty movement building efforts.
