We don’t do cat videos, but we do engage in serious poverty analysis


August 18, 2016

Census Webinar InfographicDo you wonder if poverty is growing in your state? Would you like to know how to use state and local data about income based on race, age, or gender? Do you know how to access the soon-to-be released Census Bureau poverty, income and health insurance data?
And why, why, why do cat videos attract more attention on the Internet than compelling CHN presentations on fighting poverty?

Okay. When it comes to the popularity of cat videos, your guess is as good as ours.

But when it comes to poverty and the upcoming Census Bureau data, due out Sept. 13 and Sept. 15, we’ve got you covered. The Coalition on Human Needs will be hosting a Poverty Data Webinar from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 7 so you can be ready to get and use this important information. (That’s noon to 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time.)

The webinar will feature the following experts:

Jared Bernstein, nationally known economic expert you’ve seen on CNBC, MSNBC, and in the NY Times, Washington Post, and on NPR, will share his astute analysis of what the new data is likely to show for poverty, income, and health insurance, and why.  Jared is Senior Fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, and previously was Chief Economist and Economic Advisor to Vice President Joe Biden.

Deborah Weinstein will provide you with practical training so you can find and use the Census data as soon as it is released (The Census Bureau will publish the data on September 13 and 15).  She has specialized in helping advocates use national, state and local data, with clear instructions and follow-up help if you need it.  Debbie is Executive Director of the Coalition on Human Needs.

Ellen Teller, our moderator, will make sure the speakers answer as many of your questions as possible.  Ellen is a champion advocate, and is Director of Government Affairs at the Food Research and Action Center.
