The Midwest Mobility from Poverty Network is focused on providing rapid response data and analysis to community stakeholders and policymakers who want to enhance economic mobility and decrease poverty.
Led by a multi-stakeholder steering committee, the network shares best practices to help academic institutions and others engage with practitioners and policymakers on anti-poverty agendas.
On May 8, 2019, we hosted the Midwest Mobility from Poverty Convening, bringing together universities and partners from across the Midwest to learn effective strategies from universities’ existing partnerships and explore how to expand their work.
In June 2020 and March 2021, we hosted a series of Poverty Narrative virtual workshops to bring together academic researchers, journalists and other interested in improving the narrative around poverty issues.
