Combatting a Shrinking Safety Net with Financial Empowerment
Please note that this event, presented in partnership with The Financial Clinic, was held at our NewAmerica NYC space in SoHo.
Financial responsibility and risk have shifted from institutions and businesses to individual households over the last three decades. This trend, accelerated by recent state budget cutbacks in social service programs, means many families are left to navigate a more complex system on their own. Can cities use technology and policy innovation to bridge the gap? How are philanthropy and non-profit networks promoting new structures to enable hard working families to meet these challenges?
Join us for a conversation on the impact of risk shifting and how financial development and asset-building tools are empowering families in New York and across the nation. A networking reception will follow.
