In these tumultuous times, important anti-poverty programs and civil rights protections face threats at the federal level. We must look at the real and imminent impact these policy changes have on low-income people and communities. The choices that states make will have monumental consequences on the ability of their residents to grow and learn, work, care for loved ones, and live in dignity.

At the inaugural Shriver Summit, advocates, community organizers, and funders gathered to examine the future of justice for workers, families, and communities across the country. 

Opening Plenary with Dorian Warren, President, Center for Community Change Action


The Future of Fair Workplaces


State Fiscal Policy


Lunch Plenary with Lisa Marsh Ryerson, President, AARP Foundation

Justice
Dinners

Sargent Shriver famously and frequently posed two questions to everyone from his closest friends to his newest acquaintance: "What have you done today to make this a better world? What will you do tomorrow?"

In celebration of our 50th year, the Shriver Center hopes to spark broadened conversation about poverty and inequality through Justice Dinners to be held across the country.

Sponsor

Connect. Engage. Act.

Justice Dinners are an opportunity for Shriver Center ambassadors, friends, and supporters to gather for intimate and engaging conversations on poverty, racial justice, and policy solutions that can be implemented at the federal, state, and local level.

Hosted by Shriver Center supporters, the 50 Justice Dinners to be held across the country in 2017 will generate ideas, expand networks, and enlist allies for justice and opportunity.
