Neighbourhood-Based Strategies that Reduce Poverty: Part One

Submitted by Devon Kerslake on October 28, 2016 - 6:33am

On Oct 27, we hosted our first session of the webinar series: Neighbourhood-Based Strategies that Reduce Poverty series co-presented with Vibrant Communities Canada, featuring The Parkdale People's Economy Project with special guests: Victor Willis and Nancy Henderson.

In this webinar Victor and Nancy shared an overview of lessons and challenges that relate to how diverse organizations have worked collectively to move beyond organizational boundaries and build more equitable local economies. Using the Parkdale neighbourhood in Toronto as a rich example, Victor and Nancy were able to speak to some of the specific issues that a neighbourhood-based strategy can tackle in an effort to reduce poverty.

The recording of their conversation is now available online and the slides from the presentation are available here. Please share this webinar with your networks, colleagues and friends!  

We hope you will register to join us for the next part in the webinar series, featuring the work of the 1,000 Families Project
