This panel discussion is the second of three events of the MLK event series hosted by the Institute for Social Research. It will be held on Tuesday, January 29th from 10 AM-12:30 PM in the Michigan Union Ballroom (map). The discussion will focus on potential solutions to childhood poverty. In 2011, over 13% of Michigan residents lived in poverty, but nearly 1 in 4 children in Michigan lived below the poverty line.

This discussion, featuring researchers and advocates from the University of Michigan, Columbia University, and the Michigan League for Public Policy, will address what is being done to address child poverty, what new approaches should be considered, and the consequences of simply continuing the same policies.

Speakers at the event include:
