This year has brought into sharp focus the pernicious racial and economic inequity at the root of so many of our institutions — both in New Jersey and at the national level. This conversation outlined how we can improve existing economic security programs like the EITC and TANF, while paving the way for UBI, baby bonds, reparations, and other robust reforms to break the cycle of poverty.

This virtual panel featured: Sara Cullinane, Executive Director of Make the Road New Jersey; Sebastian Johnson, writer and advocate; Otis Rolley, Senior Vice President, U.S. Equity and Economic Opportunity Initiative, The Rockefeller Foundation; and was moderated by Brandon McKoy, President of NJPP.
