Voices of Poverty

Last Thursday, April 26, I was pleased to join a group from Leadership Charlottesville for the unveiling of a new website called "Voices of Poverty." The site features a series of podcast interviews about life in poverty in Charlottesville. Kudos to the team that put this together -- what a terrific project! Click here to see & hear it for yourself. And do spend the 8 minutes listening to the first interview, in which one of our PACEM guests from this past winter (Art) talks very eloquently about life as a homeless person on the streets of our community. You can skip the second interview -- some politician blathering on about affordable housing blah blah blah. :-)

UPDATE: Luke Church of WVTF public radio covered the unveiling of Voices of Poverty; click here to hear Luke's piece.

Dave -- thanks for being such an important part of the Voices of Poverty project. We're hoping that shedding light on the poverty problem in Charlottesville will inspire ideas and action to help solve it.
Readers -- that second podcast is absolutely worth a listen!
