Poverty Action Week

November 10 - 17, 2018

The next planning meeting will be on Friday, October 12 at 2 pm in SEC 354.

Each year, one week before Thanksgiving, National Coalition for the Homeless and the National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness co-sponsor National Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week. During this week, a number of schools, communities and cities take part in a nationwide effort to bring greater awareness to and increase understanding of the issues of poverty, food insecurity, hunger and homelessness. OSU is joining this nationwide effort with service projects, educational events, dialogue, and donation/fund drives. 

Accommodations for disabilities may be made by contacting the Center for Civic Engagement at 541-737-3041 or cce@oregonstate.edu.  Poverty Action Week is co-sponsored by the Center for Civic Engagement and the Human Services Resource Center.
