The Esperanza Community Anti-Poverty Project

The Esperanza Community Anti-Poverty Project is an initiative to depoliticize and re-frame the conversation around economic and family stability within its circles of influence among Latino faith congregations and the neighborhoods they reside in and to lay a groundwork for informed people of faith to actively engage with other local residents and leaders in conversations about economic policies that impact the well-being of our Latino communities, Black and Brown low-wage workers and their families.

I was hungry, but you did not give me anything to eat, and I was thirsty, but you did not give me anything to drink. I was a stranger, but you did not welcome me, and I was naked, but you did not give me any clothes to wear. I was sick and in jail, but you did not take care of me.” – Jesus [Matthew 25:42-43]
