Every day, we’re fighting to empower the parents we serve at LIFT with the confidence, connections and resources they need to break the intergenerational cycle of poverty. Today marks a very special day for anti-poverty organizations world wide: It’s the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, as declared by the UN.
The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty “recognizes the knowledge and courage of families living in poverty throughout the world, the importance of reaching out to the poorest and building an alliance with citizens from all backgrounds to end poverty. The theme for this year’s commemoration reminds us of the importance of the values of dignity, solidarity and voice underscored in the Call to Action to fight to end poverty everywhere.”
