Conference on Poverty and Inequality in California

Among the most compelling unsolved problems facing the State of California are the persistence of unacceptable levels of childhood poverty, the growing inequality gap and the effectiveness of poverty alleviation programs.

Led by Blum Center for Poverty Alleviation Director Richard Matthew and UCI Law Professor Robert Solomon, this day-long program at UCI has a goal of identifying imperatives for action. Dr. Caroline Danielson, co-author of the 2016 PPIC Report, will give the keynote address “Income Inequality and the Safety Net in California.”

Friday, October 28 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.
