Webinar: Poverty and Opportunity in California on 10/15

Tuesday, October 15, 2019
12:05 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. PT
Despite strong economic growth, California continues to experience high rates of poverty. Backed by strong fiscal reserves, state policymakers have taken several steps to assist struggling families, but the goal of reducing poverty remains elusive. In this conversation, PPIC will share the latest data from the California Poverty Measure, and a panel of experts will discuss the implications for decision makers, stakeholders, and families across the stateβ€”and what more needs to be done.
