Empowerment center takes action to reduce poverty
This past January and February, the center collaborated with the WMU Academy of Lifelong Learning to hold five-week series of forums examining ways to reverse the negative impacts of poverty and its correlates on the well-being of individuals and families in our community. In these well-attended forums, led by expert panel members, participants shared information and lively discussions regarding poverty in relation to education, income security, affordable housing, mental and physical health, and legal issues and criminal justice.
