From Poverty to Possibilities Presented by United Way of Pierce County

November 8, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm PST

Event details:

Please join us at From Poverty to Possibilities, Pierce County’s signature community summit on November 9, 2021, that takes on barriers to economic equity. This year’s Summit will focus on racial equity and how we can prosper together. Attendees will broaden their knowledge and ownership about systemic barriers to moving out of poverty by building bridges to move forward and dismantle systems and structures holding us back.

This year’s keynote speaker is Heather McGhee. A renowned expert on the American economy, HEATHER MCGHEE is one of the most brilliant and influential thinkers exploring inequality today. Both her viral TED talk and her instant New York Times bestseller The Sum of Us reveal the devastating true cost of racism—not just for people of color, but for everyone. Deeply stirring, intelligent, and compassionate, McGhee’s talks offer us an actionable roadmap during one of the most critical—and most troubled—periods in history.

Over 200 community leaders attended this event in the past, which will be virtual this year and we hope you’ll join us. If you have already registered, thank you!
