The Urban Poverty Forum is an effort to open a dialogue around the systemic issues surrounding urban poverty and to unite a diverse community of care—including faith based organizations, nonprofits, and concerned citizens in addressing problems faced by the poorest among us. 

For this year’s 13th annual Urban Poverty Forum, Town Hall presents speakers from Northwest Immigrant Rights Project and Veterans For Peace, Puget Sound Chapter 92, as well as a performance by The Mahogany Project.

These speakers come together to focus on the relationship between militarism abroad and militarism at the U.S. border as two manifestations of a moral crisis. Join us for a timely and urgent conversation about imperialism, militarism, and our nation’s evolving legacy of conflict.

Presented by: Real Change, The Mahogany Project, Town Hall Seattle and Hugo House

The Mahogany Project is proud to be a community partner with Pork Filled Productions for their fall production of                                                                                 The Brothers Paranormal


Written by Prince Gomolvilas and directed by Mimi Katano (Artistic Director at Youth Theatre Northwest) the production runs from October 26 to November 16th, 2019 at the Theatre Off Jackson (409 7th Ave. S., Seattle, 98104).

A dark, comic thriller, The Brothers Paranormal follows two entrepreneurial Thai American brothers investigating paranormal activities in the Midwest. When the two enter the home of an African American couple displaced by Hurricane Katrina, though, all of them encounter a challenge that clashes against their notions of reality, fantasy, and sanity.
