Studies have found that nearly half of American men who grew up in households with incomes in the bottom 20 percent never rise out of poverty—half as many as in other wealthy countries. The reason is the debilitating nature of deep poverty—poor nutrition, inadequate schools, and the cost of higher education. These are barriers that few can overcome. The answer to this challenge is equity—leveling the track so no one's climb is too steep. That's different from equality, which says everyone is allowed at the starting line. Equity means providing those with the toughest climb the support they need to get there. Join us for a conversation with David Dodson, President of MDC, on how equity can be created by removing the barriers in people's way and helping families take advantage of all the supports available to them—in health, nutrition, tax credits, and education.

former selves. In worst case scenarios, the transformation results in violent

According to Livable City, public transportation, bikeability, and walkability are key factors in creating liveable cities that attract new citizens and increase productivity, as well as energy efficiency.
Nowhere is this more evident than in New York. It has the largest public transportation network in North America, serving more than 15.2 million people in the tri-state area, and nearly 6 million through subway ridership alone. Ridership has increased by over half a million in the past five years alone, in part due to the nearly $100 billion invested in the past 20 years to transform transportation. So how did New York become the leader in public transport, a pioneer of bike mobility, and potentially the largest source of greenhouse gas avoidance in the U.S.?
Join us for a conversation with Janette Sadik-Khan, former Commissioner of the New York City Department of Transportation and author of Streetfight: Handbook for an Urban Revolution, on...
