Turning Up the Fight Against Poverty: Tipping Point Community Hosts Public Concert

Tipping Point Community announced it will host Tipping Point AMPLIFIED at the Fox Theatre in Oakland on October 12, 2019. Tipping Point AMPLIFIED, presented by Visa, will feature Janelle Monae and The Roots.

“We know that poverty is preventable, and it’s going to take all of us to make that happen,” said Daniel Lurie, Founder + CEO, Tipping Point Community. “Tipping Point AMPLIFIED is a night when our community comes together to amplify successful poverty-fighting efforts and show the impact each of us can have to break the cycle of poverty.”

Today, 1 in 3 people in the Bay Area don’t have the resources to meet their basic needs. 1 in 2 Black and Latinx people in the region live in poverty. Tipping Point invests in Housing, Early Childhood, Education, and Employment solutions to change these statistics.
