The The Reno Initiative for Shelter and Equality and ACTIONN invite you to join us for a Poverty Awareness for Community Engagement (PACE) workshop. This curriculum was developed to explore the complexity of poverty issues; including power and privilege, social class, and racism. It is a continuum of educational resources that address issues of poverty in our own communities through a Call to Action. This non-prescriptive interactive approach to poverty education involves personal reflection, raising awareness, increasing knowledge and a commitment to action.

Learn the premises of PACE: Poverty is complex. Poverty connects and intersects with other issues. Poverty is a Call to Action. Exploring the complex issues of poverty & developing an action plan

Workshop Objectives:

Participants will:
Learn how poverty is defined
Increase understanding of poverty, diversity, and social class issues
Identify skills needed to work more effectively with low-income clients, friends, and community members
Develop an outline for a personal, professional, or agency action plan to address issues of poverty within your circle of influence.

When: Saturday, May 6th, 9 am to 3 pm
Where: Sparks Christian Fellowship, 510 Greenbrae Drive, Sparks
