Southern Poverty Seminar

Changing the face of poverty in Alabama: this was the theme of the 2008 Poverty Seminar at First Baptist Church Thursday.

People from various backgrounds and careers met to see how they can make a difference and help those in need.

The seminar tackled issues surrounding economic classes and what traits hamper the needy from being successful.

Thursday's seminar was hosted by the First Baptist Church Community Ministries and the STEP Foundation.
