Join the fight to #EndPoverty!

“Wherever men and women are condemned to live in extreme poverty, Human Rights are violated.  To come together to ensure that these rights be respected is our solemn duty.”

-Fr. Joseph Wresinski

Join the Movement

On October 17th, International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, people all over the world bear witness to situations of extreme poverty and to the hidden efforts made by families living in poverty to support one another and to contribute to their communities. It is a time for people of different walks of life to get to know and understand each other, and to renew their common commitment toward fighting the injustice of poverty.

Events will be taking place around the world.  To show your support, just click "Support With" above, and donate your Facebook, Twitter, or tumblr accounts to broadcast a message on October 17th.

Beyond the day itself, you can continue your commitment by joining ATD Fourth world on facebook, following along on twitter, or getting in touch with one of our local teams.
