[FORUM] 2017 Antipoverty Forum

  • The Heritage Foundation (map)

Join us for the 2017 Antipoverty Forum on Thursday, November 16 at The Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C. as we focus on putting the progress of people—not the growth of programs—back at  the center of the fight against poverty.   

That’s the message behind this year’s theme, Refocusing Policy for the Good of People.  Antipoverty policy should be measured by how well it empowers people to overcome dependence on welfare and whether it provides them the opportunity make their own choices about quality educational or health care options. 

At the Antipoverty Forum, you’ll hear from leading policy experts on conservative solutions for welfare, education, and health care that will do just that. And you’ll witness frontline stories of why relational efforts at the community level are so powerful for bringing realchange to the lives of those in need.
