In Unleashing Opportunity: Why Escaping Poverty Requires a Shared Vision of Justice, Michael Gerson, Stephanie Summers and Katie Thompson explore five key issues that are taking a disproportionate and devastating toll on low-income Americans. Topics include:
- The Importance of Early Childhood
- The Foster Care to Trafficking Pipeline
- Juvenile Justice Reform
- The Graduation Gap
- Predatory Payday Lending
For each topic, Gerson puts a lens on the magnitude of the problem, Summers applies a public justice framework for considering solutions, and Thompson tells the story of real Americans who have experienced these issues first hand.
