Description:  

The Center for Social Policy (CSP) at the McCormack Graduate School of Policy Studies, University of Massachusetts Boston sees an opportunity in the current economic and political climate to fundamentally rethink and reshape social policies that are outdated for today’s workers, employers, and communities.

We need new social policies that will reduce income inequalities and promote the economic well-being of low-income families.   The old safety net does not work.   Policies created generations ago do not adequately protect families on society’s edge.  

Therefore, to move change forward, CSP is inviting a broad group of stakeholders –to share their ideas and perspectives in a series of working sessions.

UFE staff will help facilitate morning and afternoon dialogue sessions.
