This year, we’re excited to present Tammy Thompson as the Keynote Speaker. Tammy is a recognized community activist and expert in the field of understanding and addressing generational poverty. Tammy facilitates Circles in East Liberty, an initiative that connects individuals of different socioeconomic backgrounds to combat poverty, and serves as the Family Coordinator for Open Hand Ministries. She is also the owner and operator of T3 Consulting, where she utilizes years of Real Estate experience to offer financial wellness workshops and home ownership assistance to first time home owners and those looking to overcome poverty. Through Tammy’s personal narrative and experience, she’ll provide a nuanced perspective on the reality of the poverty facing our communities and how to best connect with and support the families of the children in our programs.
