IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT OPPORTUNITIES FOR ECONOMIC MOBILITY AND STRENGTHENING FAMILIES, JOIN LOCAL AND NATIONAL LEADERS AND BE PART OF THE STRATEGY FOR CHANGE.
Thought Leaders and Officials from around South Florida and across the country will converge at the Seminole Hard Rock and Casino on October 17th and 18th beginning at 8:30 am for an important dialogue on a subject of great importance to us all, building, elevating and sustaining the Middle Class.
The Stanford University Center for Education Policy Analysis report “The Continuing Increase in Income Segregation, 2007-2012” released March 2016, states that “Florida metropolitan areas saw more economic segregation than those in any other state during and after the Great Recession.”
In view of these factors, OIC of South Florida will convene a 2016 Summit of key ecosystem stakeholders to dialogue strategies and solutions focused on Florida’s highly vulnerable middle class. Together, with the community, the summit will identify how to elevate the middle class by reducing barriers to success while equipping and empowering those below to realize economic self-sufficiency. The “Building, Elevating and Sustaining the Middle Class Summit” promises to elevate both the conversation and the consensus about how to begin reversing the middle class crisis.
