It takes a village to raise a village. Welcome to ‘Where’s The Village?’ an ongoing discussion on grassroots activism and participation from young professionals working to alleviate poverty and its effects at the ground level. In each episode, we take a look at occurrences in pop culture as well as the latest from the DC nonprofit scene to analyze what lessons can be learned, how we can empower our communities, and find our village.
