Poverty Conference 2017



About the Event

What Makes the Difference for our Youth?

Keynote Speaker

Liz Murray

Liz Murray's life as a child of cocaine-addicted parents in the Bronx was bitterly grim. There was never food in the house, everything was filthy, drugs were everywhere, and the welfare checks were spent before they arrived.  By age 15, her mother had died and she was homeless.  Determined to take charge of her life, Murray finished high school in just two years and was awarded a full scholarship to Harvard University, all while camping out in New York City parks and subway stations.

Liz Murray's life is a triumph over adversity and a stunning example of the importance of education and dreaming big.
