The State of Black Poverty: A Pan-African Millennial Perspective on Ending Hunger by 2030

April 10, 2017

Over the past year and a half, about two-dozen young adults from the United States and countries in Africa and the Caribbean, have gathered virtually and in person to reflect on the effects of hunger and poverty in black communities. The working group has been considering socio-political and theological frameworks from which to achieve the U.N. Sustainable Goal to end hunger by 2030.

Key Recommendations:

  1. A strategy to end hunger and reduce poverty must be rooted in prayer and spiritual revival for and with all of God’s children.
  2. Public policy has to be a priority for addressing the systemic issues of hunger and poverty. We must actively engage our government leaders and promote the global Sustainable Development Goals and a moral U.S. budget.
