Share Inequality Begins at Birth: Child Poverty in America Conference

Event Details


America’s child poverty rate, currently above 22 percent—the highest in the developed world—is one of the nation’s gravest social problems. On June 10, keynote speaker Senator Cory Booker and three panels of economists, policy experts, and child poverty activists will come together to discuss solutions for helping the nation’s most vulnerable.

The conference, Inequality Begins at Birth: Child Poverty in America, is sponsored by The Century Foundation’s Bernard L. Schwartz Rediscovering Government Initiative, the Roosevelt Institute and the Academic Pediatric Association.

Following the panels, participants are invited to attend a special 2:00 PM screening of The Roosevelts: An Intimate History, with Academy Award-winning director Ken Burns. The screening will feature segments from the forthcoming PBS documentary that address the issue of child poverty, and a conversation with Mr. Burns and other special guests will follow.

Lunch will be provided. There will be a live web cast of the event.
