ATD Fourth World would like to invite you to our annual “International Day for the Eradication of Poverty” online event, hosted on Sunday, the 17th of October from 5 to 7 pm (GMT).

In 1987, 100,000 defenders of human rights led by ATD Fourth World gathered on 17th October to honour the struggles and resistance of people in poverty. In 1992, the UN General Assembly declared this date the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.

The day creates a platform for people with lived experience of poverty to be heard, and for all those who care about overcoming injustice to encourage one another and renew their inspiration.

This year’s theme for the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty is ‘Building Forward Together’. This theme explores the detrimental effects the COVID-19 pandemic had and still has on families living in poverty all over the world.

Following the success and wonderful turnout for our 2020 event, we are delighted to inform you that we are again hosting a “poetry jam” this year featuring the original poetry written by people with lived experience of poverty. We will also enjoy some music.

We believe in the power and strength of poetry for overcoming injustice, and we hope you will too after this event!
