Ronald Casanova

Larry Gibson

The Poverty Initiative and friends will gather to honor the two of our dear Poverty Scholars and elder movement leaders -- Ronald Casanova and Larry Gibson.

Ronald Casanova, Poverty Initiative co-founder, Vice President of the National Union of the Homeless and president of Artists for a Better America, known as "Cas", passed on November 3rd, 2011.

Larry Gibson, protector of his WV Kayford Mountain home from the destructive path of strip mining, passed away on September 9th of this year. Larry greatly impacted our Initiative having welcomed past immersion and Poverty Scholars Leadership School participants to his mountaintop. To read more about Larry Gibson please visit the Keeper of the Mountain Foundation.

Join us for an evening in dedicated to the memory, life, leadership and legacy of these great men. Through image, song and word we will reflect on the lives and work of these Poverty Scholars and seek guidance together in the carrying forward of their legacy.

All are welcome!
