“Our Power. Our Community. Our Change.” was my keynote address at Marguerite Casey Foundation’s 2018 National Convening, which brought more than 400 community and family leaders to the Washington, D.C., area to explore how to grow a movement of low-income families, and dismantle structural causes of poverty.

The paper highlights our grantmaking approach and grantees in action, describes the power of networks, and how families are the units of change and the source of leadership that our country needs.

Indeed, I think we are at a tipping point to share an even bolder belief: The change we envision is not only possible. It is probable. It is inevitable if – and only if – we build and share power.
