Webinar: Child Poverty: Trends and Outlook – Nov 2

Posted by Spotlight on Poverty and Opportunity on November 1, 2022

A recent report published by Child Trends points to what the authors term an unprecedented decline in child poverty rates since 1993. The report has garnered significant attention and presents an opportunity to explore the causes of the decline and to consider policy recommendations that may sustain – or even accelerate – progress.

This Spotlight webinar will feature a diverse panel of poverty scholars and will explore areas of shared agreement around issues such as extending the expanded Child Tax Credit, either in the lame-duck session after the midterm elections or in the new Congress.

This event will take place on Wednesday, November 2, at 1:30 PM ET.
