When you think about the solution to poverty do you wonder about people’s ability to pay for their basic needs and what would happen if rent and food were not a struggle? Then this session is for you. We’ll spend time with the Black Women’s Resilience Project and other partners who are testing in San Diego a proven model that provides regular income supplements to families that allow them to focus on school, work, and wealth-building activities that allow them to define a new future that is not constrained by systemic issues like redlining and implicit biases that prevent women and people of color from gaining employment. We will look at how to combine public and private dollars for a successful pilot and continuation of sustainable programs.
With the safety of our community in mind, we utilize a standard set of protocols for all in-person events. We ask all participants to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (waived for religious or medical exemptions) and strongly encourage masks indoors. Please view our safety protocol in full here.
