What do you think when you hear about ‘poverty’?
Our views can be influenced by the media, by popular stereotypes, and sometimes by personal experience.
To mark the United National International Day for the Eradication of Poverty on 17 October 2020, All Together in Dignity (ATD) Ireland has launched its new film, ’17 Voices, 1 Message – Stop Poverty #17October’.
Listen to conversations with 17 people, many of whom have lived experience of poverty, about what they think poverty is and what it means to them in context of the annual UN International End Poverty Day on 17th of October.
You could be surprised!
What they have to say may change how you think and act about poverty.
