Editor's note: Every week, HuffPost Religion shines a spotlight on religious people doing good work in their communities. If you would like to recommend a faith-inspired organization, initiative or person in your community, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet to @huffpostrelig using the hashtag #faithinspires.
This week's Faith Inspires highlights the Union Theological Seminary's Poverty Initiative, based in New York City. On a mission to "raise up generations of religious and community leaders committed to building a movement to end poverty," the Poverty Initiative educates destitute community members through its Poverty Scholars Program while organizing poverty-conscious religious leaders through Theological Education courses.
This month, the Poverty Initiative embarked on an extensive book tour for "Pedagogy of the Poor," the latest in a series of anti-poverty publications that seek to empower and uplift community leaders. PI's website is abundant with free faith-based educational resources and its web of partners is truly world wide.
