Race & Gender as Drivers of Poverty

Highlighting the 2017 DC Women’s Needs Assessment Report


As a leader and advocate for equity for all District residents, CNHED invites you to join us on Thursday, May 17 from noon to 2:00 pm in a robust discussion to address and find solutions for contributors to poverty such as race and gender, and how these elements impact your work as housing developers, and workforce development and service providers.

Presentations by Kris Thompson of Calvary Women’s Services, Elisabeth Young of The Community Partnership for the Prevention of Homelessness, and LaToya Young of the DC Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

What We’ll Cover:

  • explore what it looks like when women try to get a job with housing limitations
  • explore what it looks like when women are evicted
  • draw stronger connections between housing developers, workforce development and service providers to uplift and empower women of low-income in the District of Columbia.
