In June of last year, we cosponsored an event with Robert Doar of the American Enterprise Institute and Ron Haskins of the Brookings Institution to discuss their joint AEI/Brookings Working Group on Poverty and Opportunity report titled “Opportunity, Responsibility, and Security: A Consensus Plan for Reducing Poverty and Restoring the American Dream”.
This report is most notable for its success in bringing together a common goal – reducing poverty – advocates from different policy perspectives. Reading the report is like turning the clock back to when America worked reasonably well for the common good.
We are very excited to announce that Ron and Robert will return to Minnesota on Monday, November 26th to discuss what has happened since their initial visit and where they see things going forward.
We will also be releasing our own local, joint report on recommended steps to reduce poverty in Minnesota. These recommendations will come from the Caux Round Table for Moral Capitalism, Center of the American Experiment, Growth & Justice and the Citizens League. Ron and Robert will respond to the range of our suggestions.
Please join us for a very special round table discussion with Robert and Ron at 7:30 am on the 26th at the Minneapolis Club.
Registration and a light breakfast will begin at 7:00 am and the event at 7:30 am.
Cost to attend is $15 for Business and Public Policy Round Table members and $35 for non-members. Payment will be accepted at the door.
Copies of the report will be available at the event.

The event will conclude at 9:30 am.
