Poverty and Justice Project
The Poverty and Justice Project is an intentional, community-based movement that centers on raising the awareness of the systemic, root causes of poverty and mobilizing families and community members to create a just Arizona. Created through the partnership of Arizona Community Action Association and Marguerite Casey Foundation, the Poverty and Justice Project is grounded in the belief that we as a community must educate ourselves, connect with one another, and work together to end poverty, oppression, and marginalization.
The goals of the Poverty and Justice Project are:
- Expand the conversation surrounding poverty, inequity, and marginalization and place the conversation around poverty in a larger societal and systemic context.
- Engage and challenge families and community members to join the work of justice, advocate to end poverty, and foster a stronger Arizona.
- Offer families, non-profit organizations, social services deliverers, faith communities, community groups, and community members the tools to assist in intercultural work.
- Connect community groups and organizations in more collaborative projects.
- Advocate for the expansion of relationships across cultural and socio-economic circles.
The Poverty and Justice Project engages communities in workshops and connects families and community members who are passionate about social justice.
