The Major Topics of the Forum
- De-bunking what we already know to be the un-true stereotypes of people living in poverty, which go unchallenged everyday in discourse across our communities and in our schools and institutions.
- Reveal the systemic and pervasive nature of classism which perpetuates poverty, blames individuals for economic injustices, rejects real change and promotes a widespread reliance on charity to address social issues.
