Child Poverty Research, Public Policy and the Road Ahead
What We Have Learned and Where Should We Go Next?

Child poverty continues to be a major challenge for the United States and California. The UC Davis Center for Poverty Research and UC Center Sacramento will bring together researchers, policymakers, and practitioners together for a workshop “Child Poverty Research, Public Policy and the Road Ahead: What We Have Learned and Where Should We Go Next?”  Sessions will focus on five key areas of research and policy: the importance of early childhood poverty and policies, education and poverty, the role of segregation, the impact of safety net programs, and unique challenges facing undocumented immigrant children.
