Featuring remarks by leading poverty researcher, Dr. Kathryn Edin

The All Stars Project is proud to announce the release of a new special video report entitled “A New Conversation about Poverty.”  The report features Kathryn Edin, Ph.D., Professor of Sociology and Public Policy at Princeton University, and a member of the US Partnership on Mobility from Poverty convened and funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Dr. Edin was the featured guest at a President’s Roundtable, hosted by All Stars Project President and CEO, Gabrielle L. Kurlander in October 2017.  Edin shared her observations about ASP’s approach and new research which indicates that mobility from poverty is more effectively achieved through programs that provide young people with meaning and inspiration.  Edin and Kurlander were joined at the Roundtable by All Stars Project co-founder, Lenora Fulani, Ph.D. and All Stars Project VP for Afterschool Development Research & Policy, Bonny Gildin, Ph.D.
