The Adult Forum on October 22 welcomes John Moeser, a scholar on the origins and effects of poverty in the Richmond region. He is recently retired from the Bonner Center for Civic Engagement at the University of Richmond, and prior to that, VCU’s Department of Urban Studies and Planning. Dr. Moeser will talk about how we got here in Richmond…i.e. what were the sorts of decisions that were made that generated our current rates of 25% poverty over all and 40% for children. The Forum meets in the Adult Classroom, just off the parish hall, at 10:00 a.m.
