An event is being held to mark the day as part of the “People’s Voice” series in New York City that is part of the theme. 

The United Nations encourages people to follow the event live

In addition, people can watch some people affected by poverty share their views live on a webcast on Oct. 17

Additionally, in a movement that began on Oct. 14, the United Nations encourages people to get involved with the global conversation on poverty on social media by using the hashtag #EndPoverty.

“Share photos and stories of what you and your community are doing to help end poverty,” it says.

Lastly, people can learn about the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals, and share the infographics and videos.
