Poverty In America: Is Progress Possible in our Polarized Times?

On December 11, 2019 at AEI’s headquarters, the Initiative on Faith & Public Life convened an ideologically diverse, multi-disciplinary discussion on poverty in America today and how—despite our polarized times—progress might be made both through public policy and the efforts of private initiatives. The event was co-sponsored by Baylor in Washington, the Baylor Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty, and the University of Dallas, and featured Robert Doar (AEI President), Thomas Hibbs (President of the University of Dallas), Heather Reynolds (Managing Director of the Wilson Sheehan Lab for Economic Opportunity at Notre Dame), and Jeremy Everett (Executive Director of the Baylor Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty).
