50 years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson declared “unconditional War on Poverty.” However, solutions to poverty in America have remained elusive. The Innovating to End Urban Poverty conference will explore the context for poverty, policy history, and innovative solutions bridging families to opportunity. The conference will convene a multi-disciplinary team of nationally-recognized scholars and practitioners to examine what is and is not working with an emphasis on the new policies, programs or practices needed to end urban poverty. Sponsored by USC Sol Price Center for Social Innovation and USC Bedrosian Center on Governance, the conference will consist of five topic-specific panels and two wrap-up panels over the course of a day-and-a-half.
