Jeu 17/10/2013

The International Movement ATD Fourth World will commemorate the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.

The ceremony will take place on Thursday, 17th from 1:15-2:30pm at the United Nations and will be followed by a reception at the Fourth World House.

The theme of this year is “Working Together Towards a World Without Discrimination: Building on the Experience and Knowledge of People in Extreme Poverty" with a particular emphasis on voices of activists from civil society and people living in extreme poverty to share invaluable ideas about how stakeholders can work together to realize a world without discrimination and extreme poverty.

Additionally, there will be a musical performance by Hip Hop Saves Lives, a non-profit organization that teaches humanity through hip hop as an alternative to gang and street life; and an interactive art creation directed by Gema Alava in collaboration with World Council of Peoples for the United Nations.

As part of the ‘People’s Voices’ Series, the World We Want will organize an event in the morning from 10 AM – 12 Noon. The event will feature various speakers including UN agency representatives, a representative of the Participate Initiative, and an ATD Fourth World member with direct experience of poverty in the United States. The event will take place at the Danny Kaye visitors center in the UNICEF building (tbc).
