Buchanan, Ingersoll & Rooney PC Fall 2017 Speaker Series: Toxic Inequality

September 26, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Tom Shapiro, Ph.D.

Tuesday, September 26, 2017
12:00 pm in the Cathedral of Learning
Q & A to follow

“Following nearly two hundred families of different races and income levels over a period of twelve years, Shapiro’s research in
Toxic Inequality vividly documents the recession’s toll on parents and children, the ways families use assets to manage crises and create opportunities, and the real reasons some families build wealth while others struggle in poverty.

The structure of our neighborhoods, workplaces, and tax code-much more than individual choices-push some forward and hold others back. A lack of assets, far more common in families of color, can often ruin parents’ careful plans for themselves and their children.” (Hachette Book Group)

On September 26 at CRSP, learn how bold, race-conscious reforms can move us toward a more just society, and past decades of policy-driven toxic inequality.
