This event has been moved to the Visual & Performing Arts Center (VPAC). Joint Venture Silicon Valley's Institute for Regional Studies recently released two research briefs on poverty and income inequality in the Bay Area. Please join us for this event to discuss the findings of those reports.

The event will include:

-- Briefing from the reports' primary author,
Jon Haveman

-- Panel discussion to be moderated by President Brian Murphy. Panelists will include:

From De Anza College

LaQuisha Beckum, part-time psychology instructor

Thao Le, De Anza Associated Student Body (DASB) senator and renters' rights advocate

Karla Navarro, student and activist (San Jose's minimum wage campaign and Foothill-De Anza Foundation fossil fuel divestment)

Community Panelists

Ron Gonzales, former San Jose mayor and current Hispanic Foundation president/CEO

Scott Myers-Lipton, San José State University instructor and minimum wage campaign co-founder

-- Q&A 

More than one in ten Bay Area residents live in poverty, while many others struggle to make ends meet. Although poverty rates in the Bay Area are below those of the rest of the nation, the gap between the "haves" and "have-nots" continues to grow. 

All are welcome to attend this event. Visit the Joint Venture Silicon Valley website to read the reports.
