Welcome to Summit on Homelessness and Poverty 2019. Our team has worked hard on organizing an exciting schedule full of engaging lectures and fun events. Explore our website for all the information that you need, and book your ticket today!
Last year, students at Brown University held the first inaugural Summit on Homelessness and Poverty. In doing so, they brought together a coalition of student organizations from across the country dedicated to dismantling systems that perpetuate hunger, homelessness, and poverty.
This year, UNC and Duke are hosting the Summit. We look forward to welcoming students to our campus from across the country to engage in these critical topics.
