Davis, California - The UC Davis Poverty Research and Poverty Summit will bring together researchers, policymakers and people who work on the front lines of poverty to discuss ways forward in a state with the highest poverty rate in the nation. Twenty-three percent of Californians lived in poverty in 2014, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s supplemental poverty measure.

Friday, April 22, noon-5 p.m.

UC Center Sacramento, 1130 K St., Suite LL22

Panelists include:


Across the four sessions, participants will summarize and discuss the state of poverty research and public policy over the past decade, and how research can better inform policy in the decade to come. Sessions will follow four key areas of research and policy: labor markets and poverty, the state of the safety net, children and the intergenerational transmission of poverty, and the intersections of poverty and immigration.
