The Vermont Workers’ Center is hosting the Poverty Initiative on their nationwide Pedagogy of the Poor book tour.
Based at New York City’s Union Theological Seminary, the Poverty Initiative is an organization dedicated to raising up generations of religious and community leaders committed to ending poverty. Pedagogy of the Poor, co-authored by Poverty Initiative’s Willie Baptist and Jan Rehmann, examines the root
causes of poverty and considers the role of faith leaders in building a social movement to end it. The authors highlight stories of poor people organizing alongside one another, building leadership, and raising consciousness through political education.
Willie Baptist and Jan Rehmann will be in Windham County on March 18 and 19. Members of the community are invited to participate at the locations below. (BUHS for high school students only.)
