Description

This training will help participants define poverty and explore its causes and effects. We will review national and local data on the demographics of people living in poverty as well as risk factors that can make one more vulnerable to economic instability (such as race, gender and subjective social status). We will also explore the significance of the federal poverty line and social attitudes toward the poor and their implications for people living in poverty.
