How can we address the problem of persistent poverty in low-status communities differently, and slow down the brain-drain that cripples local economic progress? Join Majora Carter live on Zoom for a discussion on her book, Reclaiming Your Community: You Don't Have to Move Out of Your Neighborhood to Live in a Better One.

Carter draws from her work and others who are breaking away from a non-profit industrial complex that views poverty as a cultural attribute to be maintained, but never resolved. Building on her corporate consulting experience with talent retention to grow business capacity, as well as research demonstrating the social, health and economic perils of concentrated poverty supported by policies and practices, Carter illuminates how conventional tools can be applied in unorthodox ways to improve the trajectory of low status communities everywhere.

This event is part of the Princeton Journey's Lecture Series.
