The Poverty Initiative

The Poverty Initiative's mission is to raise up generations of religious and community leaders dedicated to building a social movement to end poverty, led by the poor. In 2008-2009, the Poverty Initiative is focused on re-igniting the Poor People's Campaign launched in December 1967 by Martin Luther King, Jr. by bringing together leaders of poor communities across racial, gender, and religious lines into a broad-based human rights movement.
