Event description

Description

How could the Bay Area cut poverty in half? What are we doing now that must be expanded? What do we need to start doing or do differently?

What would a $15 minimum wage do for your community? What would transitional jobs programs do? What about affordable housing or college graduation?

At this community workshop residents will hear research on which policies have the biggest impact on poverty, and will provide their thoughts on what works and what needs to be done.

Lunch and a $20 gift card will be provided. Registration is limited to 50 people.

Organizer Othering & Belonging Institute

Organizer of Community Workshop on Policies to Cut Poverty in Half

The Othering & Belonging Institute at UC Berkeley brings together researchers, organizers, stakeholders, communicators, and policymakers to identify and eliminate the barriers to an inclusive, just, and sustainable society in order to create transformative change. We are a diverse and vibrant hub generating work centered on realizing a world where all people belong, where belonging entails being respected at a level that includes the right to both contribute and make demands upon society and political and cultural institutions.

The Othering & Belonging Institute responds to issues that require both immediate action and long-term strategy. The Institute engages in innovative communications, arts and cultural strategy, and strategic narrative work that attempts to re-frame the public discourse from a dominant narrative of control and fear towards one that recognizes the humanity of all people, cares for the earth, and celebrates our inherent interconnectedness.
