Social Development Commission's Summit on Poverty

Category: Events

Join us at the Social Development Commission (SDC)’s 2022 Summit on Poverty from October 25-27, 2022 happening virtually and in-person at the Wisconsin Center.

Our goal is to expand learning, engagement, and advocacy by providing access to community action agencies, human service, government, and education professionals nationwide as we address our 2022 Summit on Poverty theme: In Pursuit of Resilience & Self-Determination.

The COVID-19 global pandemic is still a clear & present threat. As a country, we are still experiencing an economic crisis and a reality of racial and economic disparities. The 2022 theme for our annual Summit on Poverty seeks evidence-based, innovative strategies that focus on resiliency and determination.

Many organizations were forced to confront and attack barriers that threatened their ability to serve impacted people and stay open. As a collective, we remain focused on our commitment to provide access to vital tools and resources that help impacted people establish pathways out of and away from poverty.

This year we share new efforts and initiatives designed to study, analyze & engage & inform. We will draw attention to the structural underpinnings of poverty, and we believe that a continuous, well-informed, and intellectually honest dialogue that will affect change can occur.

We will also seek to collaborate with key stakeholders and changemakers to identify, examine, and reflect on opportunities that nurture more comprehensive efforts to respond to the needs of impacted people during times of crisis.

We are looking forward to seeing you!
