New York City, home to over 8 million residents, has a history of bringing people together across all religions, races, and social classes. Now, 3,000 religious leaders are preparing to gather at the Jacob Javits Center for this year’s Movement Day Global Cities, an annual conference that aims to address various issues facing New York and other major cities all around the world. In this segment from our partners at MetroFocus, Reverend Ebony Small, an elder at Bethel Gospel Assembly in Harlem and the director of Movement Day, gives us a preview of the conference and shares with us how poverty will be addressed at this year’s convention.
