The Urban Poverty Forum is an effort to open a dialogue around the systemic issues surrounding urban poverty and to unite a diverse community of care—including faith based organizations, nonprofits, and concerned citizens in addressing problems faced by the poorest among us. This video recorded at this year’s 13th annual Urban Poverty Forum, presents Yessenia Medrano from Northwest Immigrant Rights Project and Phoenix Johnson, president of Veterans For Peace, Puget Sound Chapter 92.

These speakers come together to focus on the relationship between militarism abroad and militarism at the U.S. border as two manifestations of a moral crisis. Join us for a timely and urgent conversation about imperialism, militarism, and our nation’s evolving legacy of conflict.

Thanks to Town Hall Seattle, Real Change, Hugo House, and The Mahogany Project. Recorded 3/17/19
