Washington, D.C. — Tomorrow, the Census Bureau will unveil its annual poverty data, which is expected to reveal that the poverty rate among American children is growing at an unconscionable rate, and that racial and ethnic income disparities are growing wider. What most do not know, is the economic and fiscal costs of this problem and how this growing crisis can be addressed in an effective way.
Join Harry Holzer, Wade Henderson and Melissa Boteach on a media conference call to talk about Holzer’s latest analysis of the costs of child poverty, the expected disparities to watch for in Thursday’s data and the ways we can reverse these troubling trends, meeting the goal of cutting poverty in half in 10 years.
What: Media conference call to discuss Holzer’s findings on costs of child poverty, anticipated racial and ethnic disparities in the latest Census Data, and policy solutions to create jobs and make the tax code work for low-income working families.
