In May 2014, 50 delegates from across the United States came together for the ATD USA national strategic planning retreat. The goal was to reflect on ATD’s past 50 years of work in the US, and to plan for the future. There were tears, laughter, and a lot of amazing suggestions – and from all of discussions came the vision statement presented in the video (text below). It’s still a work in progress, let us know what you think!
“All Together in Dignity (ATD Fourth World) holds a vision of a world without poverty, where everyone has equal opportunity to access all human rights. In this world, everyone can be fully themselves and be known and treated with dignity, as whole human beings. Everyone has a part in building this world.”
