Discussion Groups – Poverty in American Cities

April 7 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Virtual Event

Cities large and small are facing some existential issues, as we’ve covered over the past several weeks. Often they are saddled with outdated approaches or just simply bad habits. How can cities and towns learn from their mistakes and develop public policy in a way that is sustainable?

Please join us for the final installment of our Spring 2021 Discussion Groups series, “The Modern American City: Past, Present, and Future.” Our Spring Fellow Patrick Tuohey welcomes guest Jesús Gerena, CEO of Family Independence Initiative, and Angela Rachidi, Rowe Scholar in poverty studies at the American Enterprise Institute, for a conversation on urban poverty and how to combat it.

This program is made possible through the generosity of Newman’s Own Foundation.

Submit your questions to for the question-and-answer portion of the program.

This special program will be live-streamed to the institute’s YouTube channel and to its website, Due to continuing concerns regarding the novel coronavirus pandemic, the program will only be available online. Follow the Dole Institute on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter for updates regarding this and future programming.
