In 1996, President Clinton signed into law the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act—the groundbreaking, bipartisan federal welfare-reform bill. Twenty years later, the issues of persistent poverty and income inequality dominate U.S. political discourse.

Has America failed its most vulnerable citizens? Please join MI senior fellow Jason Riley and leaders from academia, government, and the nonprofit sector for a special symposium on the past, present, and future of U.S. welfare policy.
