No Poverty is the first of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals and we long for a world where everyone has enough and no one lives in poverty.  Stand Up/Sing Out Against Poverty is an excellent opportunity to show our solidarity and commitment to ending poverty in our country and around the globe. I hope that many, many schools and churches can get involved to show they care.
