Equity Summit Series: Children & Family Poverty November 19
Equity Summit Series: Children & Family Poverty November 19

Join the Yolo County Library, Yolo County Office of Education and the UC Davis Center for Regional Change for the second of four presentations in the Yolo County Education & Equity Summit Series on November 19 from 11:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the City Hall Galleria, located at 1110 West Capitol Avenue in West Sacramento.

The November 19 presentation focus of Children & Family Poverty will be presented by M. Anne Visser, Ph.D., assistant professor for the UC Davis Department of Human Ecology.  Dr. Visser studies the forms of social, economic and political exclusion (such as poverty, citizenship status, race, class and gender) that result in inequality and social stratification.  Her work includes studying the impacts of these inequities on young people and the capacity of government policy and civil society to address socioeconomic inequality in the United States and abroad.

This presentation will include a panel of local experts discussing dynamics in Yolo County that result in inequality and social stratification.  Panelists include Yolo County Health & Human Services Manager Nolan Sullivan, West Sacramento resident, attorney and longtime social and political activist Carlos Alcala and Washington Unified School District Outreach Specialist Maria Jacquez.  The panel will be facilitated by Yolo County Supervisor Don Saylor.

The Yolo County Education & Equity Summit Series provides a framework for understanding the comprehensive view of young people and the issues they face.  The third and fourth installments of the series will convene in February and April 2016 and will focus on the cost to Yolo County of high school dropouts and social determinants of health.

All presentations are free to attend and open to the public.  Register for the Yolo County Education & Equity Summit Series Children & Family Poverty presentation by November 12 at: www.ycoe.org/summit-series/register or call (530) 668-6700 for more information.
