Dates: 

May 15, 2019
6:15pm - 8:00pm

Location: 

Courtyard Marriott Downtown Boston
275 Tremont Street
Boston, MA 02116

As income inequality continues to plague Boston and other major cities in the US, the question is not just how we got here, but what are the impacts to both society and the individual - and what can we do about it? Join us for a discussion about:

  • How income inequality impacts access to opportunities
  • Programs and policies to reduce and eliminate inequalities
  • What you can do as an individual to address this injustice

Panelists:

Mary Jo Bane, Harvard Kennedy School Thornton Bradshaw Professor of Public Policy and Management
John F. Barros, City of Boston, Chief of Economic Development
Deborah Kincade Rambo, LICSW, President and CEO of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Boston

A Faith That Does Justice is an interfaith organization that raises consciousness about social issues affecting the most vulnerable among us and offers opportunities for people to walk in solidarity with those who our society marginalizes.
