The Ray Marshall Center has received a grant from the Aspen Institute’s Ascend Program Innovation Fund to edit a volume of writings on strategies for combating inter-generational poverty that can be widely read, cited, and used by other researchers, practitioners, and policymakers. Ascend Fellows Christopher King, Lindsay Chase-Lansdale (Institute for Policy Research, Northwestern University) and Mario Small (Division of the Social Sciences, The University of Chicago) will serve as editors for this volume. By documenting various applications of the two-generation approach piloted by Ascend Fellows and relevant measures of success, the anthology will support a wider understanding of and credibility for two-generation anti-poverty strategies. The Aspen Institute plans to publish the volume in Summer 2014. For more on the Ascend Fellows Program, visit the Program’s website.
