MJC Poverty Project



Our Sociology of Family classes at Modesto Junior College have collaborated to present this website for activism. The course is taught by Dr. J. Douglas Penn with hopes of coordinating resources for the Stanislaus Community and advocating for society’s most vulnerable.

  1. Use this color for bigger/smaller underlined texts. That’s the color number-> #e7b56c If you don’t know how to do that, then email me: ki905@yahoo.com
    Also don’t dump in links on the pages. Create a title and add the link to that title. If don’t know how to do that, then email me, so I can send you a picture tutorial without any problems. 🙂

  2. I would like to become involved in your project. Is this a one-time website resource, or is it an extension of a new Club that focuses on outreach? Either way, if those not currently enrolled in Dr. Penn’s course are welcome, I would like to participate. I am pursuing an Associate Degree in Human Services and a Transfer Degree in Sociology. I will be taking Sociology of the Family Spring 2017, though not with Dr. Penn. I would like to be involved in a club that puts emphasis on community outreach, specifically regarding the homeless as I intend to focus on homelessness in my career. If this is not yet a club, I would like to be involved in transitioning this project into a sustained club for students to join and work toward improving our community.
    Thank you for creating this resource. I hope to work with you in the future.
