Book release

On September 9, in partnership with the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, the center hosted a national poverty event to highlight the newly-released book, $2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America. The event included a presentation by the authors, Kathy Edin and Luke Shaefer, followed by remarks from Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and Cecilia Muñoz (White House Domestic Policy Council). It also featured a discussion by a panel of national and international poverty experts (pictured above), including Wade Henderson (Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights), Barbara Ehrenreich (Nickel and Dimed), and Aparna Mathur (AEI).
