Resourcing the movements to abolish poverty and systemic oppression.
Past and present political regimes in the U.S. have intentionally destroyed social safety net programs, leaving poor people and their advocates under-resourced and under threat. The LGBTQ Poverty Initiative seeks to increase awareness and discussion of poverty in LGBTQ communities by engaging mainstream anti-poverty organizations, policy makers, funders and LGBTQ advocates and community centers in a process of collective information sharing. On this site, we will share organizing strategies via webinars and blog posts, highlight events to connect on an interpersonal level and upload new research aimed at building LGBTQ representation in anti-poverty movements.
