2019 Brew and Stew
This year's "Brew and Stew" is the 6th annual fall fundraiser for "Project I See You," a women's empowerment organization that creates cross-cultural experiences that invest in women’s worth and value. We connect lives, nurture relationships with each other and God, promote reciprocal dignity, and develop agency in women, allowing them to take effective action to improve their lives. "Project I See You" believes that women who are SEEN and VALUED in COMMUNITY are more willing to take action to change the conditions of their lives for the better. And when women do better, their communities and their countries do better.
Featuring craft beers and ciders, fine wines, delicious food, music, and live and silent auctions, "Brew and Stew" will be a chance to learn more about and support the work “Project I See You” is doing. This includes the completion of the first phase of “Centro Te Veo” in the Dominican Republic, a women’s empowerment center where women meet, connect, work, and create TOGETHER. Also, within a few months, in collaboration with “Open Door Ministries,” we will be opening “Te Veo House”, a newly-renovated home for up to 16 women that are experiencing homelessness in Denver. Finally, we will also be celebrating 10 years and honoring those who have been a part of the "Project I See You" story.
We look forward to seeing you there!

Poverty 101 - Becoming poverty informed with Shant'a Johnson
Saturday, October 26
3050 Richard Allen Court, Denver, CO 80205
Poverty 101 is about understanding the complexities of poverty and how many different life experiences are labeled “poverty.” It is knowing that working-class poverty experiences are different from situational poverty experiences or generational poverty experiences. It is understanding that those in poverty in our communities are struggling in a war zone. It is about operating on the assumption that people are making the best decisions they can within the “shoes” they are wearing. It is fostering a climate of everyone belonging and having the opportunity to shine. It is creating relationships based on identification so people can see they are not so different.
Participants will leave with:
A deeper understanding of poverty, its history, causes, and current national and local facts;
Awareness of their own attitudes, beliefs, and values about poverty and those who endure it;
Skill sets for communicating and relating more effectively across poverty barriers; and
Tools for building strong internal and external partnerships to take a collective approach.
