Shining a Light on Poverty Event on February 27

In honor of 50 years of community action in Vermont, the Office of Economic Opportunity is hosting a series of one-hour discussions on poverty every month in 2014.

The next of these discussions is entitled The War on Poverty: Large Positive Impact, But More Work Remains, and will take place on February 27, 2014.  The event will feature Center on Budget and Policy PrioritiesDanilo Trisi.

Danilo will provide an assessment of poverty trends over the last 50 years, focusing on the factors that have led to declines in poverty and demographic shifts that have kept poverty higher than it might otherwise have been. He will also discuss the role of the safety net in reducing poverty.

The event takes place on Thursday, February 27 from 10 to 11am.
