The Ensuring Opportunity Campaign is a collaborative effort to end poverty in Contra Costa County by addressing structural causes at the policy level.
We believe direct services are essential to addressing the impact of poverty but that services alone are not enough to end poverty, so we advocate for policies that address poverty at the root causes.
Poverty is not natural. It is man-made and can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings.
– Nelson Mandela
