A message from Mark Ruddy, president of EHNA

The following is an invitation to join a 7-session process to learn about the level of poverty in Eau Claire County, get training in community organizing skills, and evolve to an action group that that works to decrease poverty in a significant way. Clear Vision has proven its effectiveness in past citizen engagement initiatives. The first session is October 6th. My goal is to have a group of us from the Eastside Hill join this process and eventually target poverty issues in our Neighborhood. Contact me at markruddy55@yahoo.com. Here is the invite from Clear Vision:

In October Clear Vision Eau Claire will launch a POVERTY SUMMIT. This new citizen-led initiative will bring people from all of Eau Claire County together to identify and take action on poverty and income insecurity issues facing our local communities.

We have started recruiting participants for the 7-session Poverty Summit by reaching out to citizens with a unique perspective or a personal experience, as well as those who represent service providers or are in a situation with an opportunity to touch and reach other people.

You can learn more about the Poverty Summit at ClearVisionEauClaire.org. And if you have questions or would like to participate, please let us know at eauclaireclearvision@gmail.com.
