The term poverty means “the state of being extremely poor,” which people naturally associate with a lack of money. Unfortunately, this narrow understanding may cause us to overlook non-monetary barriers like structural racism, social barriers and systemically reinforced policies that keep people in poverty. Poverty is defined as a lack of money, but it also intersects with a lack of meaning or purpose, and a lack of social relationships. THE INTERSECTIONS OF POVERTY, RACE & CLASS WORKSHOPS are designed to help businesses and institutions understand the personal, structural and systemic realities of poverty in America.
