Part of the Meyer and Renee Luskin Lecture Series
Join Los Angeles County Supervisor Holly J. Mitchell for a conversation about work being done to strengthen the public social safety net that serves as a lifeline for millions of families in L.A. County. In this UCLA Luskin Lecture, Mitchell will share information about county efforts to alleviate poverty among children and communities that have not been equitably served. She will discuss the intended impact of Breathe: L.A. County’s Guaranteed Income Program, one of the largest and longest programs of its kind in the nation, and the need to challenge social services programs deemed coercive and intrusive. She will also speak about the county’s equity framework for spending $1.9 billion in new federal American Rescue Plan funding. Following Mitchell’s remarks, Judith Perrigo of the UCLA Luskin Social Welfare faculty will lead a dialogue that includes ample time for audience questions.
