Confronting Suburban Poverty in America - Release Event

May 20, 2013

On May 20, the Metropolitan Policy Program at Brookings hosted an event marking the release of the book, Confronting Suburban Poverty in America, co-authored by Elizabeth Kneebone and Alan Berube. They, along with some of the nation’s leading anti-poverty experts, were joined by leading local innovators from across the country to discuss a new metropolitan opportunity agenda for addressing suburban poverty, how federal and state policymakers can deploy limited resources to address a growing challenge, and why building on local solutions holds great promise.
