On Wednesday, October 17th, 2018, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., A Wider Circle will be hosting the 2018 Forum on Ending Poverty at the National Press Club.

Want to learn how one nonprofit organization is saving the state of Massachusetts $11,000,000 each year by preventing evictions and homelessness?

Or how one teacher completely changed the culture and consciousness at a low-income school in Philadelphia?

Or how we can take real steps toward great racial equality and economic opportunity?

From Boston to Philadelphia to Washington, D.C., this event will feature leaders who are building initiatives and creating solutions at a powerful level.

The Forum will highlight some of the most impactful work in education and in homelessness prevention, while also focusing on racial equality and economic opportunity.
