The Poverty Discussion Group brings together students interested in issues related to domestic poverty and low-income families/communities to have informal brown bag discussions every month. We believe Wagner students have a great deal of knowledge and experience through jobs, internships, and volunteering from which our community can learn. Through these conversations, we hope to start lively discussions that will expand our knowledge of the innovative anti-poverty initiatives being implemented by local, state, and federal governments, as well as exciting on-the-ground work being done by CBOs.

This month's discussion will feature Dr. Cynthia Miller, Senior Research Associate at MDRC, who will discuss the impact of the EITC based on her work with MDRC’s Director, Gordon Berlin.
