Communications Collaborative Webinar

Prelude to the 50th Anniversary on the War on Poverty
May 29, 2013 at 3:00 p.m. ED

January 2014 will mark the 50-year anniversary of the War on Poverty and present the antipoverty community with an opportunity to both reflect on what progress we have or have not made since that milestone year, as well as to set out a vision throughout the year for how we can move more families to prosperity in the next 50 years.  On May 29th, The Communications Collaborative, with special guests Half in Ten and the Center for American Progress, held a discussion about how to leverage the potential of this moment and advance critical goals to create lasting economic security for struggling families.
