B.T. Roberts Symposium on the Church, Justice, and the Community
May 3, 2017
The reality of childhood poverty in the Greater Rochester Region is a growing injustice caused by a complex economic and sociological landscape.
The effects of regional childhood poverty are felt across rural, suburban, and urban communities resulting in a need that is rapidly outgrowing available resources.
The response to the suffering of the vulnerable and oppressed in our community has a defining impact that is inconsistent with the Christian faith.
Answer the call:
- Move beyond information gathering
- Engage in the work already taking place
- Explore how you can make an impact
- Work with constituents and community representatives to identify new avenues for prevention and relief
