Stand Up Against Poverty: October 17th - 19

Dont forget! I almost did!

Hundreds of events are taking place around the world this weekend, hoping to catch the eye of world leaders. "Stand Up Against Poverty" is a global effort that invites people to do something, it's better than sitting down.

There is a couple of differences form this year event from the past. Events will be during the entire span of the weekend instead of one day. Also, the events will invite people to take action such as sending letters to your government, organizing teach-ins, distributing books or other educational materials.
