Actively Learning About Poverty

This action relates to "The Complexity of Poverty" and shares ways to get involved in learning what poverty means in our communities and beyond.


Poverty is a complex issue. It can be easy to get overwhelmed by how much needs to be done, but the first step to making a difference is making sure we are informed. Here are a few things we can do to make sure we are actively learning about poverty:

  1. Watch "Living on One Dollar" and "Poverty, Inc." You can also organize a screening of "Living on One Dollar" and "Poverty, Inc." in your community.
  2. Learn more about the practices of the organizations you already support. Do they value the stories of the people they are serving?
  3. Get plugged in with local organizations serving the poor.
  4. Check out "When Helping Hurts" and "Toxic Charity."
  5. Ask questions!
