Houston Congregations Engaged: Efforts to End Local Poverty
The Religion and Public Life Program's next event is "Houston Congregations Engaged: Efforts to End Local Poverty." In October 2015 we hosted a panel entitled "Religion and Global Poverty" in order to address the efforts of NGOs, both religious and non-religious, in poverty alleviation efforts around the world.
This time we will look to the poverty in our own city and have an open conversation about how congregations can be more effective in their efforts to reduce local poverty. Cleve Tinsley, RPLP graduate fellow, will moderate discussion among four panelists: Steve Gross, Houston Congregation for Reform Judaism; Pamela Prickett, Rice University; Ruth Lopez Turley, Rice University; and Rozella Haydee White, Mission Year Houston.
Join us Thursday, February 16th at 7:00pm. The event will be held in room 309 of Sewall Hall on Rice University's campus. A reception will follow the event.
