Education for Empowerment

The Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign (PPEHRC) is the nation’s largest organization working to end poverty that is actually led by poor people. We are a coalition of over 125 poor people’s groups and allies from across the country. At our new National Center in Philadelphia we will connect poor people and their organizations with media professionals, artists, students, social workers, members of the religious community, teachers, and labor leaders to provide critical exchanges that develop the leadership, analysis, strategy, relationships, resources, and skills necessary to build the movement to end poverty.
