The grind of poverty impedes the dreams and potential of our people. This working group will seek to eliminate poverty in America and increase upward mobility by considering policy reforms in the following areas: education, jobs, workforce disruption caused by COVID-19 and technology, opportunities for youth, affordable housing, community and economic development, banking, tax policy, and support for minority- and women-owned small businesses. The group will develop recommendations on the reforms, resources, and private and intergovernmental partnerships needed to implement economic models that create a growing and inclusive middle-class in the U.S.
