Ending Extreme Poverty Now: Working Together with the Poor

In recognition of Pope Francis’ call to address poverty in new and substantive ways, and in solidarity with those suffering in poverty across the globe, various Catholic organizations are co-sponsoring a conference on “Ending Extreme Poverty Now,” taking place on Tuesday, April 28, at The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC. The conference is sponsored by the Institute for Policy Research & Catholic Studies (CUA), United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Catholic Relief Services, Catholic Charities USA, U.S. Agency for International Development, and the Africa Faith & Justice Network.

This conference will engage on the vital topic of so many living in extreme poverty worldwide – including millions here in the United States. Sponsors will share the perspective of agencies serving those in extreme poverty in local communities nationwide. Featured keynote addresses include the Apostolic Nuncio to the United Nations and the assistant administrator from USAID. The conference is free and open to the public, and will be held at the Catholic University of America on Tuesday April 28, 4-6:30 p.m. For more information and to reserve your place, click here.
