The End of Poverty? is a daring, thought-provoking and very timely documentary by award-winning filmmaker, Philippe Diaz, revealing that poverty is not an accident. It began with military conquest, slavery and colonization that resulted in the seizure of land and other natural resources as well as in forced labor. Today, global poverty has reached new levels because of unfair debt, trade and tax policies -- in other words, wealthy countries exploiting the weaknesses of poor, developing countries. Can we really end poverty under our current economic system? Think again.

This event is free (donations accepted). Wheelchair accessible. Please bring nonperishable food items and/or large size children’s disposable diapers for Monument Crisis Center.
