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.
United Way of Pierce County is pleased to announce that Wendy Ellis, DrPH, MPH, will keynote this year’s Summit. Dr. Ellis is the Director of the Center for Community Resilience at the Milken Institute School of Public Health at George Washington University. The Building Community Resilience (BCR) collaborative and networks are implementing the BCR process -- a strategic approach for cross-sector partners to align resources, programs and initiatives with community-based efforts to address adverse childhood experiences and adverse community environments -- or "The Pair of ACEs".
Dr. Ellis has spent the last decade developing and working to grow a 'resilience movement' to address systemic inequities that contribute to social and health disparities often transmitted in families from generation to generation.
