Share Confronting Suburban Poverty: A Conversation with Alan Berube

Event Details

After decades in which suburbs added poor residents at a faster pace than cities, the 2000s marked a tipping point. Suburbia is now home to the largest and fastest-growing poor population in the country.

Author Alan Berube, a senior fellow and deputy director at the Brookings Institution's Metropolitan Policy Program, will present the findings of his 2013 book Confronting Suburban Poverty in America. Berube will outline the issues facing poor people living in places like Contra Costa and the Tri-Valley area, and he will describe some of the innovative solutions being tested in other communities. After the presentation, the Bay Area News Group's award-winning political columnist Dan Borenstein, will interview Berube using questions submitted by the audience.

Hosted by The Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano.

Sponsors: Dean & Margaret Lesher Foundation, East Bay Community Foundation, East Bay Leadership Council,  Contra Costa Family Economic Security Partnership, Opportunity Junction, Contra Costa County Safety Net Innovation Network, and the Y & H Soda Foundation.
