Poverty Matters Summit 2018 Photo Gallery

The 2018 Poverty Matters Summit – Statewide Edition sponsored by Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield was inspiring! The Social Development Commission was honored to co-host this state-wide event with our partner agency, Wisconsin Community Action Program Association. We had great workshops and awesome speakers.

Our keynote speakers Tim Wise and C. Nicole Mason disrupted our norm with their life stories and work experiences. We were educated and inspired by their work that aims to change the policies and systems that keep people in poverty.

We appreciate everyone who attended, every presenter, our planning partners, and all of our sponsors. We look forward to seeing you on October 29-30, 2019!

In the meantime, let’s keep sharing our stories and cultivating our solutions to close the rural-urban divide and improve the communities that we live in. Join SDC’s Facebook Group, SDC Ambassadors, and engage with other like-minded individuals who are taking action to impact our community.
