IT TAKES A COMMUNITY

About This Campaign

A Symposium Featuring Brenda Ann Kenneally who grew up in poverty in Troy, NY. Kenneally is a mother, teacher, multiplatform documentarian, Guggenheim Fellow, Pulitzer Prize nominee and a TIME Magazine award winning photo journalist. Over the past thirty years, Kenneally’s long-form, immersive projects have produced visceral portraits of the personal experiences of disadvantaged children, women and families in America, as well as a ground-up historic record of contemporary social and political values in the United States. Kenneally has spent more than thirteen years recording the current generation of Upstate Girls, which inspired her to launch a progressive non-profit - A Little Creative Class. Kenneally forged A Little Creative Class to help address the obstacles that deter poor and low-income youth from participation in the emerging innovation, idea-based economy.

Campaign to Support Habitat for Humanity of Schenectady County, Inc.

Habitat for Humanity of Schenectady County is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization committed to building homes, communities and hope. Schenectady Habitat is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all. Established in 1993, Schenectady Habitat serves Schenectady County in New York State’s Capital Region. The organization is dedicated to making quality, affordable housing solutions available to low-income families. To date, more than 50 houses have been constructed and sold, in addition to 100+ other housing units repaired, for a total of more than 500 families served in Schenectady County.
