NWRU Truth Commission on Poverty

Register HERE for Truth Commission: Poverty In All Its Forms Is Violence: Caregivers Victimized by Poverty Speak Out.

Thursday, March 18, 2021 from 7:00-9:00 PM EDT. Convened by the National Welfare Rights Union.

A multi-racial panel of mothers and other caregivers will speak out about:

  • Their experiences of living in poverty
  • Having their children removed by child welfare not because of abuse but because the families are impoverished (including water cut offs) or because their mothers were victims of domestic violence
  • The criminalization of poverty and its relationship to mass incarceration
  • How they have come together with others to fight back
  • The relationship between their conditions of poverty and systemic racism, the war economy, destruction of the environment and the violence and oppression of the market focused economy.
