The Coalition on Human Needs has scheduled its annual Poverty Data Training Webinar ahead of the U.S. Census Bureau’s release of poverty data. Jared Bernstein, former top economic adviser for Vice President Joseph Biden, current senior fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, and nationally known economic expert, will discuss what he thinks the new data will likely show about poverty, income, and health insurance. The webinar will also tell you how you can quickly find and use national, state, and local data. The webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, September 9 at 2:00 pm ET.
The training is free and all webinar registrants will receive timely follow-up information before and after the Census Bureau releases poverty data on September 16 and 17. Register for the webinar at https://chn.peachnewmedia.com/store/seminar/seminar.php?seminar=46565#blank.

Ellen Teller, Director of Government Affairs at the Food Research & Action Center (FRAC) will moderate. Ellen is an attorney who has been an anti-hunger advocate for FRAC for nearly 30 years
