RICHMOND HAS A 26% POVERTY RATE – THE OFFICE OF COMMUNITY WEALTH BUILDING IS HERE TO CHANGE THAT

The Office of Community Wealth Building is a first in the nation-type undertaking with the goal of reducing overall poverty by 40% and child poverty by 50% in Richmond by 2030. In order to achieve that larger goal, the smaller goal is lifting 1,000 people out of poverty every year. This is not easy because combating poverty or as the office properly names it, “wealth building” is not a science, it is truly an art. Every person is different and every circumstance is different. Therefore, in order to lift Richmond’s 26% poverty rate the approach has to be different. I had the pleasure of visiting with Reginald Gordon, the Director of the office and Zane Robinson, who heads the marketing and communication aspects of the office for this exclusive visit. #WESEEIT You can follow all the activities of The Cheats Movement online at www.thecheatsmovement.com and follow The Cheats Movement on twitter.
