Please join the Anti-Poverty Network of New Jersey and the John S. Watson School of Public Policy for a special briefing on an important new research report:
The Cost of Poverty: The Perpetuating Cycle of Concentrated Poverty in New Jersey Cities
The event will review the findings of new research which examines the budgetary pressures in four New Jersey cities facing the challenges of decreasing resources and growing poverty: Bridgeton, Passaic, Perth Amboy, and Trenton. These cities offer important insight into the perpetuating cycle of concentrated poverty, depleted resources, and the inability to invest in needed services.
The event will feature a presentation on the report from the report's research team, as well as responses from the Urban Mayors Association.
The event is free, but seating will be limited. Please reserve your spot by Tuesday, May 17.
