Downloadable PDF: 

Mayor A C Wharton made a bold commitment to reduce poverty in Memphis by 10% within 10 years – lowering it from 27% to 17%. This will require a combination of more and better jobs; better access to areas of job growth; lower household expenses for energy, transportation and water; and opportunities for economic advancement that are built on public safety, education, health, supportive services, and affordable housing.

As part of our work developing strategies that will help Memphis reach this goal, CNT proposed creating the Center of Prosperity and Empowerment, which would address poverty through increased efficiency and sustainability.
