Poverty Awareness Week – Neill Public Library Events



Neill Library joins WSU during Poverty Awareness Week November 15 – 21 to raise awareness about poverty issues in our community.  Library events include a month-long display and special movie night showing of the documentary “A Place at the Table”.  Following the film, representatives from the Pullman Poverty Awareness Taskforce will lead a panel discussion.

Display “Poverty Awareness on the Palouse”, November 2 – 23
This display focuses on the various aspects and effects of poverty in our community, from food insecurity to housing to medical needs, and offers information about local resources and ways to provide assistance.  Sponsors include Neill Public Library, GIESORC, CCE and Backyard Harvest

Movie & panel discussion “A Place at the Table”, November 19 from 5:30 – 7:30pm, Library Hecht Meeting Room
Food insecurity is a problem in America with 50 million Americans grappling with this issue.
