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.
