The various partners behind the ongoing Truth and Hope Poverty Tour of North Carolina [1] will be hosting a major event in Rocky Mount next Saturday August 11 that will be a “report, mass meeting and summit.”

This is from the announcement:

“After traveling over 2,000 miles to 27 communities across North Carolina, and conversations with thousands of North Carolinians, the Truth and Hope Poverty Tour is convening a report, mass meeting and summit on what we heard about poverty across our State. Join us to bear witness to the stories of our neighbors’ lives and to continue to build a Movement and promote and create plans for change. Many of the individuals who talked about their economic struggles in today’s economy will attend — others will share their stories in a powerful video produced by [Raleigh-based journalist] Cash Michaels.”
