When it comes to policy proposals that impact economically vulnerable families and individuals, it can be confusing to know what is most helpful. To help bring clarity, the NAE hosted a free webinar to explain what is on the table and how you can be part of lifting millions out of poverty.
Kathryn Edin, one of the nation’s leading poverty researcher, and Gabriel Salguero, senior pastor and coalition leader, offered a framework and basis for considering bipartisan solutions. The NAE staff also highlighted information on tax credits, immigration, predatory lending and paid family leave.
