Mission: to give a strong voice to the poor in the Cleveland area toward eliminating poverty.
USSF Philly 2015 On June 25-28, 2015, UCAP traveled to Philadelphia, PA for the U.S. Social Forum. In addition to attending several of the different workshops and People's Movement Assemblies (PMA's), our group led a PMA on Building a Movement to End Poverty. A march for Philly Charleston solidarity and the March from Austerity to Prosperity were held despite the heavy downpour of rain! The weekend also consisted of several cultural events.

On January 8th, 2014, United Cleveland Against Poverty gathered at Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of President Johnson's declaration of the War on Poverty. Members of many local anti-poverty agencies gathered together to provide testimony and demand that we no longer fight against the poor and redeclare the War Against Poverty. UCAP continues to be committed to a War on Poverty rather than a War on the Poor.
