This day-long conference will bring together nationally-recognized researchers, policymakers, and advocates working on the front lines in the fight against poverty to discuss the causes and consequences of poverty and the role of policy and regulation in the fight against poverty nationally, and in Montana in particular. Sessions will focus on both short-and long-term policies, from nutrition and health insurance programs, to the impact of family structure, to the roles of education, work, and social entrepreneurship in the fight against poverty.
Attendees will leave the conference with a deeper understanding of the causes and consequences of poverty, the impact of the myriad policies designed to help the poor, and the prospects for effective policies aimed at reducing poverty moving forward.
