Our From Poverty to Possibilities event is part of a series of community conversations that have been gaining momentum over the past few years. It was our largest event of its kind and the depth and scope will hopefully kick off the first of many more conversations - that move far beyond talk into action!

THE 4TH ANNUAL
FROM POVERTY TO POSSIBILITIES SUMMIT!
From Poverty to Possibilities is Pierce County’s signature community summit that takes on barriers to economic equity. This year's summit will focus on disrupting poverty by exploring the intersections of trauma, equity, and resilience. Looking at both Adverse Childhood and Adverse Community Experiences (pair of ACEs), together we will explore what a trauma-informed approach to our work might look like to promote community resilience and address the root causes of toxic stress.
Over 200 community leaders attend this event, which will be virtual this year and we hope you'll join us. 'Pitch to Ditch Poverty' challenge will return for a 2nd year. Look for additional details & registration information soon!
