2/21/2016 - Good Conversations - "Poverty in Southbury" on February 21, 2016

Is having a street named Poverty Road the closest that people in Southbury come to experiencing poverty? Over the years, the answer to that question has become a definitely "no." Clergy from some the Southbury faith Communities are hosting this discussion as part of a "Good Conversation Series." The goal is to spark healthy and constructive conversation on issues that are important to the town.

Facilitators will present a "current snapshot" of the growing impact of poverty in the community and also identify resources available. The gathering will begin with some guidelines for respectful and productive conversation and a brief overview  of the issue at hand, followed by the opportunity for all to participate in good conversation about the topic.

RSVP's are requested but not required:
