Tavis Smiley Presents: "Made Visible: Women, Children, and Poverty in America"
Poverty in America officially has a new face: women. More than half of the 46.2 million Americans living in poverty are women, and 29 percent of adult women are more likely to be poor than adult men. In celebration of Women’s History Month, join broadcaster Tavis Smiley and an panel of forward-thinking experts for a thought-provoking conversation outlining the root causes of poverty among women and children—and developing real solutions.
This event is free and open to the public. Please bring photo ID for entry. The event will be broadcast live on C-SPAN, so attendees are encouraged to arrive by 3:30. All attendees must register for admittance, and doors will close when venue is full. For more details, visit TavisTalks.com.
