    Ending Poverty:
    America’s Silent Spaces


    moderated by Tavis Smiley

    in conversation with:
    Elaine Batchlor, MD, MPH, Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital
    Maria Brenes, InnerCity Struggle
    Jonathan Fielding, MD, MPH, Los Angeles County Department of Public Health
    Marqueece Harris-Dawson, Community Coalition
    Dr. Manuel Pastor, University of Southern California
    with welcome by Dr. Robert K. Ross, The California Endowment

    Admission is free; however, an RSVP is required.

    While the Los Angeles economy continues to recover, the opportunity to advance remains out of reach for many. Poverty and structural inequities continue to plague our communities and are associated with poor health and well-being. A number of studies link poverty to higher levels of cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and other diseases and conditions.

    As the most populous county in the nation with the highest rate of poverty among California counties—exceeding that of the national average—how can Los Angeles instead become the leading example for expanding economic opportunity, prosperity, and well-being to its communities?

    Join The Tavis Smiley Foundation in conversation with a multidisciplinary panel of experts on poverty, including grantees on the frontlines of this work with The California Endowment, California’s largest private health foundation, as we work to identify innovative and community-based solutions that will inform a meaningful path out of poverty for our communities.
