Poverty, Justice, and Jobs Think Tank

  • Harvard Law School

The Houston Institute is pleased to join the Advanced Leadership Initiative in sponsoring a think tank — our name for a solution-finding workshop — on Poverty, Justice and Jobs.

This topic is timely both globally and in the U.S., where the stimulus funds being sent to cities and states under the Obama administration agenda provide an opportunity for new ideas for how to make these expenditures effective for all people, especially those at the bottom. The Poverty, Justice, and Jobs think tank will seek to identify actions or programs that can improve outcomes for people and communities through new leadership for social innovation and collaboration to connect and enlarge promising approaches.

We expect the event to involve prominent experts, activists, advocates and thinkers who will gather over three days, from April 30 to May 2, at Harvard Law School. This promises to be an important weekend and we hope you can join us for some or all of these program.
