At Poverty Action, we believe that low-income communities and communities of color inherently have the expertise and experience needed to identify and lead solutions to the problems impacting them. Our work both starts and is carried out in partnership with Washingtonians living on low incomes, and it all starts with our semi-annual Listening Sessions.
The primary goal of Listening Sessions is to build relationships and trust with low-income Washingtonians across the state so that we can elevate their voices during the legislative session and beyond.
As the name suggests, Listening Sessions are an opportunity for Poverty Action staff and board to listen and learn from community members. The issues we work on are directly influenced by the conversations, feedback, and experiences that we hear from people with low incomes and communities of color throughout Washington. We develop and advocate for policy solutions in the upcoming Legislative Session based on what we hear.
If you have been invited to attend this Listening Session by Neighborhood House, we look forward to seeing you on August 31!
