First Ladies of Poverty Foundation has partnered with Facebook advocacy page and group Minority Party to create a community support group for minority communities and allies. The group is intended to be a support group for minority communities where we can support each other in their personal lives, professional lives, financially and in leadership.
The partnership goal is to be very proactive about supportive each other in getting what we need on our journey to employment / career development, financial security, healthy relationships and a fulfilling lifestyle. We aim to break glass ceilings and create new standards of living for ourselves, our loved ones and our communities
