About Poverty Cure Summit

The Poverty Cure Summit provides an opportunity for participants to listen to scholars, human service providers, and practitioners address the most critical issues we face today which can either exacerbate or alleviate poverty. These speakers will join panel discussions to discuss the legal, economic, social, and technological issues pertaining to both domestic (U.S.) and global poverty. Rooted in foundational principles of anthropology, politics, natural law, and economics, participants will gain a deeper understanding of the root causes of poverty and identify practical means to reduce it and promote human flourishing.
