Welcome to my home and, specifically, my speakeasy room. This is a room where we relax and enjoy our friends and family. (The art is by my cousin Wanda Buck.) Our team at Communication Across Barriers has been working to find ways to give back and be supportive during this pandemic. During the eight weeks of short videos, I will discuss Poverty and COVID-19 impacts and solutions. In addition, we will be offering discounts and resources that can help you in your fight against poverty.

In this video, I discuss how COVID-19 is impacting people experiencing generational, working-class, immigrant, and  situational poverty. I will also show how many of our neighbors will fall through the cracks and not receive any of the relief being offered.

Help support us on Patreon! Included in your membership will be a digital copy of "See Poverty ... Be The Difference" and more. You'll also make a difference by helping keep focused on delivering content.

As a way to give back to the community during this pandemic, we are providing the following resources/discounts:

This link to the video and discount will be available through May 31, 2020.

I work at a community action agency. How can I help others fill out forms now? In the past I have had people come in and done some with them. There seems no way to do this remotely.

I'm certainly not an expert, but maybe your IT staff, if you have any, can come up with something? Could you get a copy of the form and walk people through it over the phone? Then when you're done mail the form to them, assuming they have an address.
