Prepare to be inspired as you learn about best practices for fighting poverty at the Faith & Action Project’s Spring Conference on Tuesday, March 14, at the Christian Theological Seminary. Throughout the day, best-selling authors, community advocates and change agents will come together from across the United States and here in Central Indiana to explore sustainable approaches to poverty.
Get the raw facts on poverty around the nation and here in our Hoosier neighborhoods– and be inspired by success stories from communities already achieving sustainable pathways out of poverty. Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett will welcome attendees and kick off a day of interactive dialogue.
Opening and closing speakers include Robert Lupton, community developer and best-selling author of “Toxic Charity” and Dr. Gregory Ellison, Associate Professor of Pastoral Care and Counseling at Candler School of Theology in Atlanta, GA, and author of “Cut Dead But Still Alive: Caring for African American Young Men”.
Attendees can engage in breakout sessions led by local and national community advocates, entrepreneurs and faith leaders. The Spring Conference is mandatory for organizations wishing to apply for a Faith & Action grant. A required, information session at the end of the Spring Conference will address participants’ grant application questions.
