April 13, 2019 @ 10:00 AM - 8:00 PM
Marathon of 3-4 films that explore images and plotlines addressing class and race,
socioeconomics, work ethics and action for changing individual and community
Event will include an afternoon presentation about images and language that
perpetuates stereotypes in commercial film and news media and may contribute to
inaction — and one family-oriented film.
The Niagara Falls Empire State Poverty Reduction Initiative, utilizing a pipeline of social, educational and training services, empowers residents of the City of Niagara Falls – through care coordination, collective impact, and holistic service provision – to progress from situations of poverty and unemployment to stable, sustainable, and career-centered employment.
ESPRI is led by a steering committee with representatives from Catholic Charities (lead organization), Niagara Organizing Alliance for Hope, the City of Niagara Falls, and the New York State Department of Labor.
