Stark’s Future: A Virtual Panel Discussion
April 26 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am
Event: A Discussion of Stark’s Future: Strong Neighborhoods, Strong Families
Date: April 26th, 8:30 – 9:30 AM | Type of event: Virtual panel
For 100 years, the United Way of Greater Stark County has focused on building a better, equitable community where every person has the potential for a healthier life, a better education, and more financial stability. During the past 100 years, the needs of our community have become increasingly complex. Disturbing data shows there is an urgent need to address childhood poverty, which threatens our youngest residents, our community and our future.
The price of poverty is high. We must disrupt the vicious cycle of disinvestment and displacement which damage the vitality of communities of families with low, or even no income. Real change starts with understanding where people come from and strengthening neighborhoods in partnership with their residents.
Join us for a virtual panel discussion on this important community topic.
- Don Ackerman, Canton For All People
- Betty Smith, Executive Director at EN-RICH-MENT
- Angela Perisic, President & CEO at United Way of Greater Stark County
See you April 26!
