Event Details

 As we mark the 50th Anniversary of the 1964 War on Poverty, there is still a lively debate on how much government has accomplished.  Poverty rates remain high, and the gap between the rich and poor has widened. Poverty, income inequality and economic fairness are social issues gaining increased attention.

Join the discussion as our panel explores which anti-poverty programs have worked and which have not. What are the poor in our community really facing daily? What innovative new policies show signs of success? What are the relative strengths of market, governmental and non-profit sector solutions? Is ideology and partisanship standing in the way of practical, common-sense, middle ground policies?
