Are We Really Fighting Poverty?

With thousands of nonprofits, churches, and government agencies fighting poverty in our community, why is poverty still so prevalent? Are we simply putting Band-Aids on the problems without actually addressing the systemic roots of poverty?  In this episode, guests Ayanna Johnson-Watkins of MICAH and Sutton Mora of Community Foundation of Greater Memphis discuss why our current system isn’t producing the results we want to see.  We take a critical look at what’s not working and identify nonprofit and philanthropy’s role in changing the narrative.
