    20th Anniversary Poverty Summit




    Be a sponsor for the 20th Annual Poverty Summit for New Jersey, where partners and APN members gather from around the state to learn and strategize about solutions to ameliorate and end poverty.



    The Summit is always a keystone of APN’s year. At this year’s Summit we are expecting approximately 250 participants representing direct service organizations, advocacy groups, faith communities, labor and government partners, academics, and individuals with lived experience of poverty.



    The day will feature keynote speakers and a dozen workshops throughout the day focusing on bold solutions to end poverty in New Jersey over the next 20 years.


    We are looking forward to a day focused on understanding the systemic factors that perpetuate poverty and structural racism, and engaging diverse stakeholders in solutions that can grow opportunity in the Garden State.
