RSF trustees Kathryn Edin (Johns Hopkins University) and Lawrence Katz (Harvard University) and RSF grantee Raj Chetty (Stanford University) will participate in an event hosted by the US Partnership on Mobility from Povertyon Thursday, May 3. Along with other scholars and community advocates, they will discuss research findings and policy recommendations for dramatically increasing mobility from poverty.
As members of the US Partnership on Mobility from Poverty, Edin, Katz, and Chetty worked with a team of 24 to study the effects of poverty on families and develop new strategies for boosting economic mobility. For two years, the Partnership listened to and learned from 300 residents from more than 30 urban, suburban, rural, and tribal communities. A report summarizing their findings is available on the Partnership’s website.
