On June 28th, 2017 at 2:00pm ET, the Self-Sufficiency Research Clearinghouse (SSRC) will host a free Webinar entitled Transportation Access and Its Importance to Economic Mobility and Family Self-Sufficiency. This moderated Webinar will provide an in-depth look at the research on how transportation barriers hinder self-sufficiency for low-income workers and explore practice- and policy-based approaches for alleviating transportation barriers. During this webinar, presenters will discuss the state of the research on transportation as a barrier to self-sufficiency and the relationship between transportation and economic/employment outcomes, as well as provide a practice and policy perspective to include recommendations and findings relevant to the self-sufficiency field. Dr. Evelyn Blumenberg (UCLA), Dr. Nicholas Klein (Columbia), and Dr. Asha Weinstein Agrawal (San Jose State University) will serve as speakers and Dr. Kristin Abner will moderate the discussion.
