Reinventing the War on PovertyOn March 6The Atlantic will convene in Washington, D.C., for a new program,"Reinventing the War on Poverty." Speakers at the Forum will explore the current economic and social breakdown of the country's population, how we got to this point, and importantly, what can be done to ensure that millions below or on the brink of the poverty line have the tools to create sustainable foundations for themselves and future generations.

The country has changed since Lyndon Johnson declared a War on Poverty 50 years ago, and the White House--along with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle--are revving up to re-energize the fight. We will assemble the leading voices from policy and practice for a constructive and solutions based discussion of poverty as well as potential solutions in the education, labor and economic policy terrains. Topics may also include: how to move the needle on education, costs and benefits of universal healthcare and pre-k, and private versus public sector responsibility.

Join The Atlantic in jumpstarting an important debate that will be crucial in steering the future success of America both domestically and as an economic competitor in the global community.
