PPI releases "Working Our Way Out of Poverty" Report
On March 25, 2015, the Community Advocates Public Policy Institute releases our “Working Our Way Out of Poverty” report at a special briefing. The report proposes a package of policies that an Urban Institute analysis has determined would cut poverty by 50 percent or more in the United States. The report makes the case for adopting the policy package – to stimulate growth, and to ensure work opportunities and economic security for all. The policy changes work together to make jobs available, make work pay, reduce obstacles to work, and help seniors and adults with disabilities.
