WHY ATTEND THE CONFERENCE:
Enjoy beautiful Pueblo, Colorado - the gateway to Southeast Colorado while participating in a four-day conference packed full of amazing sessions and speakers, inspiring and entertaining keynotes and networking activities with your peers!

GETTING AHEAD OF POVERTY:
When people understand and relate to a problem, they’re more inspired and empowered to seek out solutions.  The 2012 Colorado Conference on Poverty is a statewide, private and publicly funded event that engages policy makers, government employees, human service agencies, advocates, volunteers and people with low-income in intensive learning, training and planning around poverty issues. We share best practices and models for policies and programs that really work. We provide concrete examples of how people can become engaged as anti-poverty advocates.

UNDERSTANDING CSBG:
Local organizations throughout our state, known as Community Action Agencies or Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Entities/Subcontractors, actively partner with communities and other organizations on the local, state and national level to reduce the causes of poverty, fight the impacts of poverty, and help people with low-income achieve self-sufficiency.

YOU CAN PARTNER WITH AN ACTIVE POVERTY FIGHTING NETWORK:
The Colorado Community Action Association (CCAA), a membership organization, works primarily in the arena of training and technical assistance activities that make sense for low-income people, communities and agencies offering services that help individuals overcome obstacles to self-sufficiency.  If you are interested in joining the CCAA, please contact Josiah Masingale at 303-959-9934 or coloradocommunityaction@gmail.com

ENJOY PUEBLO, COLORADO - THE GATEWAY TO SOUTHEAST COLORADO!
Pueblo is undergoing a renaissance including recent urban revitalization efforts and an explosion of creative arts (from street performances to numerous galleries and studios opening). Pueblo is a place to see and experience. Located at the confluence of the Arkansas River and Fountain Creek, Pueblo has been an important crossroads for transportation and trading for more than 150 years, making it the economic hub of southeastern Colorado.  Now with the building of the Historic Arkansas Riverwalk, you can dine, stroll or even enjoy a boat or gondola ride along this river-inspired park.

Pueblo Colorado is a multi-cultural community, predominantly comprised of Hispanic, Italian and Slovenian populations who have been here for generations.  Drawing from this unique cultural makeup, the Pueblo community is well known for our diverse and delicious foods.
