          About This Event

          Summary

          Poverty Today: From Safety Net to Self-Reliance

          The New Face of Poverty

          In 2011, Tavis Smiley and Dr. Cornel West launched their Poverty Tour to bring attention to the people who were hardest-hit by the recent economic decline, and they completed a second Poverty Tour this year. In support of these tours, Dean John Graham and Associate Professor Kristin Seefeldt at the IU School of Public and Environmental Affairs prepared a white paper and subsequent book—“The Great Recession and America’s Poor”—detailing the effects of the Great Recession and the recovery on the poor in the United States. They suggest that the poor in America may be harder hit during the slow recovery than during the downturn itself. Smiley wrote the foreword. (Seefeldt has since located to the University of Michigan.)

           On January 15 in Indianapolis, SPEA will host Smiley, Graham and two local community activists to talk about the real effects of poverty in this community and offer possible solutions. Each panelist will share his viewpoint, then the audience will be invited to ask questions. Marion County Superior Court Judge Cynthia Ayers will moderate.

           Free and open to the public, but RSVPs required because space is limited.

          Please RSVP to Cortnee Martin at coemarti@iupui.edu or 317-278-9670.
