Push Back Poverty: The Faith & Action Project Spring Conference
Please join us on May 2 for the Faith & Action Spring Conference. Together, we’ll discover and share ways to “Push Back Poverty” in Indianapolis.
For this year’s event, we’ll gather at Eastern Star Church for a morning of insights anchored by keynote speaker Father Greg Boyle. A dynamic storyteller, Boyle is a Jesuit priest and founder of Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles, the largest gang intervention, rehabilitation and re-entry program in the world. His book, Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion, is a New York Times bestseller. He’ll share the platform with two young men who have participated in Homeboy programs.
You also will hear from Faith & Action Project grant recipients, who will discuss their programs and how the grants have helped them scale up and in increase their impact.
At noon, the Faith & Action Project will hold an informational meeting for organizations interested in applying for 2019 Faith & Action Project grants.
Please plan to attend and join the city’s effort to Push Back Poverty, and be sure to invite friends from your church, colleagues and coworkers, peers in service organizations and on boards, and anyone else who might be interested.
