Walking Tall exists to build interpersonal relationships with individuals experiencing poverty through full access, so that they may experience community through safe, and sacred spaces for healing. They strive to bring awareness to the general public through an important, “shift” in the language used in regard to poverty, and charity. They accomplish their mission and vision through living out the ideas of Language, Mutuality, Abundance, Radical Hospitality, and Justice.
