For people who live in poverty, every day is a risk, and being outside in your neighborhood is a health hazard. The violence is linked deeply to the lack of economic opportunity. These conditions are unacceptable for our own families... and for any families.
In partnership with A Wider Circle, Leadership Greater Washington invites you to the 2020 Thought Leadership Series: “Ending Systemic Violence Through Economic Opportunity.” Leaders will engage in six half-day interactive workshops to educate and promote bold thinking and solutions to reducing systemic violence in our region through economic partnership, multi-sector collaboration, and opportunity.
