About the Briefing

The Community Advocates Public Policy Institute's Pathways to Ending Poverty Project, with the help of local and national experts, has developed a groundbreaking four-part proposal for reducing poverty in Wisconsin.

An independent analysis by the Urban Institute estimates that this policy package will but poverty by more than half, lowering the poverty rate in Wisconsin to less than 4%.

Copies of the report will be available at the event, which will feature a presentation by David Riemer, Senior Fellow at the Institute, and Conor Williams, Economic Policy Analyst at the Institute.
