  1.  Real-World Perspectives on Poverty Solutions Speaker Series: Terri Friedline Real-World Perspectives on Poverty Solutions Speaker Series: Terri Friedline

    October 15, 2021 - 12:00 PM ET

    How did racism and sexism become embedded in our understanding of physics and the cosmos? What does the fight over the Affordable Care Act—better known as Obamacare—reveal about our country’s politics? What would it take for the U.S. to adopt a universal child allowance?

    The annual Real-World Perspectives on Poverty Solutions speaker series will explore these issues and many others. Featured speakers include Associate Professor of Social Work Terri Friedline, author of “Banking on a Revolution: Why Financial Technology Won’t Save a Broken System," Chanda Prescod-Weinstein, a trailblazing theoretical cosmologist who also explores the relationship between how we understand science and broader societal justice; HuffPost Senior National Correspondent Jonathan Cohn, who covers politics and health care policy; and H. Luke Shaefer, the director of Poverty Solutions at the University of Michigan and a contributor to significant research on the potential of a universal child allowance to drastically reduce child poverty in the U.S.

    The eight-week fall speaker series is hosted by Poverty Solutions at U-M, a university wide presidential initiative that aims to find new ways to prevent and alleviate poverty through action-based research, in partnership with various university departments.
