Americans increasingly face financial uncertainty as they struggle to make ends meet during a period of rising food and fuel prices, a continuing mortgage crisis, and an overall economic downturn. Yet even before these latest challenges, a growing number of state and local governments launched comprehensive anti-poverty initiatives. These include special legislative caucuses, poverty reduction targets, and information-sharing summits.
Join us for a policy forum featuring two panels to explore this growing trend. Speakers will include advocates, experts, and state and local officials from Minnesota, Connecticut and New York City.
This forum is sponsored by the Half in Ten Campaign, National League of Cities and Spotlight on Poverty and Opportunity.
