Join the Urban Institute for a discussion about why poverty persists in America and how everyone can play a role in fighting it. Matt Desmond, Pulitzer Prize–winner and author of Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City and a new book, Poverty, By America, will join Mary Cunningham, Urban’s vice president for metropolitan housing and communities policy, and Myra Jones-Taylor, Urban’s chief policy impact officer, in conversation about how individuals, policymakers, and communities can combat poverty. They will explore policies that work, the role of evidence in advocacy, strategies to drive policy and narrative change, and ways to build a movement that has tangible and lasting impact.
