MILWAUKEE — Marquette University will co-sponsor and feature many presenters at the 2021 Summit on Poverty hosted by the Social Development Commission on Tuesday, Oct. 19, until Thursday, Oct. 21, at the Wisconsin Center, 400 W. Wisconsin Ave.
Every year, the Summit on Poverty looks at poverty from different perspectives. Participants explore ways to knock down the four barriers that keep people in poverty: trauma, cognitive dissonance, isms, and policy and systems.
The theme of the 2021 Summit on Poverty will be “Realities, Reflections, & Recovery: Surviving & Thriving Through the Year 2020.” Last year demonstrated how the four barriers contribute to social injustice, health disparities, and economic inequality that many will continue to experience for years. Registration for attending in-person or virtually is available online.
Marquette President Michael R. Lovell is scheduled to take part in a welcoming plenary address on Tuesday, while Marquette presenters will be featured throughout several workshops, including:
A complete agenda for the SDC Summit on Poverty is available on the event website and includes a complete schedule and link to workshop and speaker information.
For over 50 years, the SDC has served as a planner, coordinator and provider of human service programs for low-income individuals and families in Milwaukee County. In 1963, the SDC was established as an intergovernmental Public Commission and, in 1964, the SDC became the Community Action Agency for Milwaukee County. The SDC serves the most vulnerable populations, giving them a voice, inspiring hope, and helping them to achieve stability by providing pathways from poverty to success.
