Future of Society, Creating Economic Mobility in Marginalized Communities
Time & Location
About the Event
Detroit has struggled with the problem of racial discrimination and segregation of marginalized communities, including people of color.
The poverty rate in Detroit is three times higher than the national average and child poverty rates are upwards of 43%.
Economic mobility is a key focus area for city officials, yet the programs introduced are making little headway for most families who are losing ground with each passing year.
Precious time they really cannot afford to lose. The city needs revitalization programs, backed by evidence and data to drive reform programs in healthcare, workforce, housing and revitalization, jobs and economy, and police.
