Robert Doar will explore the history and future trajectory of welfare policy in America. Weaving together personal anecdotes and statistical insights, he will explain the significant progress that has been made to alleviate poverty in past decades. At the same time, he will map out many of the obstacles still standing in the way of further advances. Developed through his own decades of experience and influenced by his father's public service, Robert will outline the most important features of an effective anti-poverty program that promotes work, family life, and civil society in order to lay the groundwork for a more prosperous America.
