In Community: A Speaker Series Featuring Matthew Desmond, Author of “Poverty, By America.”
October 12 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Together with CTPublic, Fairfield County’s Community Foundation is proud to present the equityLAB’s first program, a three-part speaker series with influential thinkers addressing enduring challenges facing our community and our society at large. These conversations aim to inspire fresh perspectives, imagine actionable solutions, and nurture collaborative efforts to bring about change in our region.
The first event of the series will feature Matthew Desmond, Princeton sociologist, fervent poverty abolitionist, and the celebrated author behind the Pulitzer Prize-winning Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City (2016). Desmond continues to drive awareness and public discourse with his latest book, Poverty, By America (2023) which delves deeper into the complexities of poverty and ways we can collectively usher in a new age of shared prosperity.
