Date: September 08, 2021

Join the Othering & Belonging Institute at UC Berkeley and partners for a panel discussion on expanding essential lifeline assistance programs.
We'll hear from the authors of a new report from the Othering & Belonging Institute, called "Fighting Poverty with SNAP," which presents a broad framework to expand programs like SNAP and Universal Basic Income.
The framework envisions these programs operating at their full capacity as anti-poverty tools, rather than merely addressing the outcomes of economic inequality.
