Alia Whitney-Johnson spoke at “Stand Up and Take Action Against Poverty” on October 17th. The event was hosted at Harvard as part of a international movement, in which millions of people took part last year.
More than 100 students from MIT, Harvard, Northeastern, and Brandeis gathered together at the event to learn from students and organizations working to fight poverty. At the end of the night, participants took a pledge to work to change conditions contributing to poverty in their lifetime.
