Ending Child Poverty: Examining Poverty Trends and Policy Implications

Registration forthcoming
The passage of the America Rescue Plan – the Covid-19 relief bill – will lead to significant cuts in child poverty. Policy proposals in the 2019 National Academies report A Roadmap to Reducing Child Poverty called for many of these and similar measures.  This webinar will discuss the policy implications of the report and look at what is known about poverty trends since the release of the report, as well as discuss the limitations of the report and directions for new research that can inform poverty-related policy decisions.

Speakers: Delores Acevedo-Garcia, Brandeis University; Isabel Sawhill, Brookings Institution; Greg Duncan, University of California, Irvine; Tim Smeeding, University of Wisconsin-Madison; Jane Waldfolgel, Columbia University
When:  May 4, 2021 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM (ET)
