Sisters of Charity Health System & partners launch #SpeakUpCLE social media campaign to take a stand against poverty

Clevelanders are known for our grit. We fight for what we believe in … and right now, there’s plenty to believe in. But that’s only half the story. Nearly 40% of Clevelanders are living in poverty. Almost 60% of Cleveland’s children live in poverty. This is a reality we must face long after the crowds have disappeared.Poverty is a formidable foe … but Cleveland is a city of fighters. Many partners throughout this city and beyond are working to make real impact through: Quality education | Safe, healthy and affordable housing | Food security | Quality, affordable health care | Job creation, preparation and access.

Take a stand against poverty. Join the conversation. #SpeakUpCLE. [More]
