The Broken American Dream



Description: 
The 7th Annual Poverty Symposium will bring together presenters from a wide range of disciplines to foster a discussion on "The Broken American Dream"--- why it is broken, and what we can do to fix it. Special emphasis will be on the rising economic inequality and decreasing social mobility that make it increasingly difficult for poverty and homelessness to be overcome. In this all-day symposium, topics as broad-ranging as affordable housing, immigration, healthcare, labor unions, community organizing, and criminalization of homelessness will be covered.
