Talking about Poverty and Economic Opportunity: Shifting the Narrative

May 29, 2019  |   2 p.m. - 3 p.m. EST


Poverty and economic opportunity are often difficult subjects for advocates to talk about, especially within today's political climate. Instead of always refuting (and inadvertently re-enforcing) misinformation and stereotypes about people living in poverty, we need to reframe economic issues through values-based messaging and remind audiences that we can create an economy that works for all.

This webinar offers an introduction to our Economic Opportunity narrative pillars and messaging guidance on how to shape an affirmative narrative on the issues of poverty and economic opportunity. Our guest speakers are Marisol Bello, director of content strategy and development for the Center for Community Change, Bill Nichols with Spotlight on Poverty, and Charon Hribar, director of cultural strategies and the Poor People's Campaign revivals coordinator for the Kairos Center.
