Poverty workshop planned for Friday in Buffalo

The sixth Buffalo Poverty Research Workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Friday in the downtown Central Library’s auditorium.

Those concerned about poverty can learn about new research, promising strategies and opportunities for collaboration.

The free event is open to the public.

Those with social services agencies, religious organizations and government agencies, along with the public, are invited to attend sessions that include “Poverty, Race and Community Policing,” “Understanding the Experiences of New Americans in Buffalo” and “An Exploration into the Lives of Chronically Homeless Women.”

Those not already registered can sign in starting at 8:30 a.m.

The workshop is sponsored by the Homeless Alliance of Western New York, the Partnership for the Public Good, the University at Buffalo Civic Engagement and Public Policy Research Initiative, and co-sponsored by the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library.
