Academics and policy advocates joined the Brooking’s Institution’s Center for Economic Security and Opportunity for a discussion on a report from the National Academies on reducing intergenerational poverty. Several topics were addressed, including the drivers and root causes of poverty, racial disparities, access to housing, the impact of the family, and labor and income challenges. They also touched upon how investment in education and low-income communities can improve quality of life for families experiencing poverty.
