RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - The Rapid City Prosperity Initiative is planning an interactive series on poverty awareness on the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology campus to shed light on the realities of poverty and serve as a call to action.

The initiative’s Kelsie Lawrence is leading the three-part series. It will cover such topics as cultural and global diversity, personal development and community involvement.

More than 20 agencies from Rapid City and the Black Hills region participate in the Prosperity Initiative, which strives to improve lives by assisting individuals in the transition from poverty to prosperity.

The first session, “Poverty 101,” is 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Surbeck Center ballroom.

Other sessions are scheduled for March 14 and March 21.
