Viewpoints on Poverty: Exploring Life In The Margins @ Queen Street Commons Cafe
May 14 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

WRN | Waterloo Region Nonviolence Join us for an inclusive evening with a panel presentation, group discussion, and personal action to achieve nonviolent solutions for people living a life of poverty.

This Viewpoints forum tries to bring the perspectives of a person with experience living a life of poverty, a facilitator working in the field, an academic, and a policy maker.

There will be a Question and Answer session after the panel presentation, then we will break into groups with each panelist to discuss common themes and solutions. A spokesperson from each group will then report back to everyone.

The Viewpoints forums are being recorded for release as podcasts. You can listen to previous podcast episodes and view pictures of past Viewpoints forums.
