October 17, 2020: International Day for the Eradication of Poverty
In 1992 the General Assembly of the United Nations declared October 17th International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. The "World Day to Overcome Poverty" is linked to three issues: (1) Appreciating the resistance of people affected by poverty to misery and exclusion. (2) Make the needy and marginalized people heard and talk to them. (3) Working with the very poor to ensure that everyone's rights really apply to everyone.
