"Fighting Poverty with SNAP": Expanding Assistance Programs as Anti-Poverty Tools

Date: September 08, 2021

Time: 12pm - 1pm PT / 3pm - 4pm ET

More info & RSVP: https://belonging.berkeley.edu/SNAP


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.
