Additional Information

The main orientation of her life and work is related to poverty eradication: VISTA in Kentucky, the East Boston CDC, and for the past 35 years, national, regional, international responsibilities with the ATD Fourth World Movement, a human rights based approach to overcoming poverty. In Boston, there is a collaboration with CSP that has brought us to work on projects together, in particular a qualitative research project on the violence done to the poor, and their efforts at peace building.
