Poverty Now Speaker Series
In his 1964 State of the Union address, President Lyndon B. Johnson declared an "unconditional war" on poverty. That war established a range of new programs designed to reduce poverty and inequality in the United States and laid the foundation for today's anti-poverty programs, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP); Medicare; Medicaid; Head Start; and expanded Social Security benefits.

As the COVID-19 pandemic threatens to greatly increase the proportion of Americans suffering from serious economic distress, the LBJ School is launching a limited speaker series, "Poverty Now," which will look at the reasons behind the persistence of poverty and inequality in the United States and will examine a range of policies intended to address these problems.
