Long Island Truth Commission on Poverty

When: Tuesday, September 12, 4:00pm – 9:00pm (EDT)

Where: Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Church, 1434 Straight Path, Wyandanch, New York 11798, USA

Despite New York’s great wealth, more than 3 million New Yorkers live below the federal poverty line, and millions more struggle to make ends meet. On Long Island, 35 percent of households earn less than the cost of living. Low-income Long Islanders face challenges accessing child care, healthcare, transportation, housing, healthy food, education and living wage jobs. People of all races and genders are impacted, but women and people of color disproportionately bear the load. Why is this? How are individuals, families and our community impacted, and what is being done to respond? How can we create a more just community in which all our neighbors can thrive?

Join us on Tuesday, September 12, to hear people directly impacted by poverty and related injustices, direct service providers, advocates, faith leaders, and policy experts reflect on these questions. To attend, RSVP here. (Due to time constraints, we may not be able to accommodate all requests to testify in person on Sept. 12.) If you prefer to submit written testimony, you can do so by emailing emcneill@labor-religion.org. We are looking for testimony from directly impacted people, direct service providers, advocates, faith or other community leaders, and academics or other experts. This event is part of the Truth Commission on Poverty in New York State being held across New York in 2017 and is part of a national Truth Commission on the Right Not to Be Poor, organized as part of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival.
