“Creating an Opportunity Society”
Ron Haskins, Senior Fellow, Economic Studies Program; Co-director, Center on Children and Families.
America presents citizens and immigrants with great opportunity to get ahead. Even so, there is less mobility in America than in other industrialized nations and perhaps less than in the past. Individuals, parents, communities, and governments at all levels can do a lot to promote mobility and opportunity. Specific proposals for increasing opportunity, many supported by good evidence, will be presented.

“The Recent Migration Slowdown and America’s Changing Regional Demographics”
William H. Frey, Demographer, Senior Fellow
America’s regional demographics have been strongly influenced by persistent migration flows from the sunbelt to snowbelt, inward from the coasts, and immigration from abroad. Fast growing metropolitan areas like Las Vegas have ridden the waves of these flows. This presentation will discuss how past migration patterns has created sharp regional distinctions, and how the recent migration slowdown has affected them.

Events are free; no ticket or reservation is necessary.
