  • Poverty in Eastern Kentucky

    When you think of extreme poverty, you may tend to think of people overseas, or in far away places. The reality is, there are many struggling right here in our own back yard.

In order to help and love these people, someone would have to live along side of them, teaching and helping them on a daily basis. The Happy Church is a community doing just that. Check out how the Happy Church is showing Christ love through ordinary acts of love. Godfire Apparel is proud to be partnering with and giving proceeds from our apparel to help fuel the Happy Church as they live out this incredible story.

They are also one of the poorest, most disadvantaged regions in America. Central Appalachia has up to three times the national poverty rate, an epidemic of prescription drug abuse, the shortest life span in the nation, toothlessness, cancer and chronic depression. But everywhere in these hills, there are also young fighters filled with courage and hope. Settled by tough pioneers who clawed their way over the Appalachian Mountains to expand America's borders, the region has produced some of the fiercest military fighters the country has seen. Like their ancestors before them, the children of the mountains are born fighters, and for two years, ABC News has documented the unique challenges some of these rural children face as they chase after their dreams. Courtney, 12, hopes for a home for her and her family. "We're not like other people, we can't afford food after food after food," she said.

As the coal industry declines in Eastern Kentucky, it becomes more and more evident that rural Appalachia’s most valuable resource is not mineral but mental. We must train and retain the brightest minds to help revitalize this region. Steven Palmer will use his recent experiences teaching in coal country to show the current challenges facing educational equality in Appalachia, as well as how we can keep those students who are creators and innovators from leaving the region. This young-person led revitalization in one of the poorest areas of the U.S. could lead to the largest economic turn-around in American history. As a proud alumnus of UT Chattanooga, Steven has been privileged to see the growth and transformation of the Scenic City first-hand. Steven served as a Social Issues, Equity, and Diversity Chairperson and Vice President of the UTC student body. After graduating from UTC in 2014, he joined the Teach For America Appalachia Corps and began the most challenging and eye opening journey of his life. Steven has since been teaching high school and middle school English Language Arts and Drama at Harlan Independent in Harlan, KY. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
