Philadelphia #1 for Deep Poverty – The Poverty Summit Addresses the Crisis

By May 18, 2016May 23rd, 2016No Comments


Philadelphia’s story is a tale of two cities.  New skyscrapers and housing developments everywhere.  At the same time  the city has the highest deep-poverty rate of the country’s 10 largest cities.  “Poverty Summit: Philly Solutions for Philly Poverty,” seeks to address solutions for closing the gap between the have and have not’s.  I spoke with Reverend Gregory Holston, President of OIC of America and a member of the interfaith group POWER about the event scheduled for Thursday May 19th at Community College of Philadelphia.
