Event Details

While decades of work have led to a reduction in the number of Americans in poverty, millions of families remain stuck in a cycle of financial insecurity. In an uncertain political climate, programs that combat poverty are at risk of seeing reduced federal funding.

In this context, cities are taking steps to help, re-inventing their approaches to supporting their residents as they seek to climb up the economic ladder. On December 13th, join us for a compelling discussion with Congressman Dwight Evans (D-PA) on ways our cities and suburbs are working to combat poverty.

About Congressman Dwight Evans

Congressman Dwight Evans is proud to represent Pennsylvania’s 2nd Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives, which includes parts of Philadelphia, and its suburbs. He is serving his first-term after being elected in a special election in November 2016.

For 36 years, Congressman Evans served as a state representative in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. In the state legislature, he earned a reputation as a pragmatic leader who knows how to put public policy above politics and make ideas matter. He made history in 1990 when he became the first African American Chairman of the Pennsylvania House Appropriations Committee, a position he held for two decades.

Congressman Evans currently serves on the House Agriculture Committee and Small Business Committee. Additionally, he is a Co-Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) Development and Wealth Creation Task Force.

Throughout his public service career, Congressman Evans has worked tirelessly to expand and broaden access to economic and educational opportunities for all Philadelphians. His top priorities in Congress include: combating poverty in our neighborhoods, tackling food insecurity, investing in school rehabilitation and infrastructure to help our public schools, and expanding access to capital and credit in order to grow our small businesses, create jobs, and diversify our workforce.
