Miracle or Mirage? Texas and Our Path to Opportunity

Join us for a luncheon and presentation by Ann Beeson, Executive Director, Center for Public Policy Priorities

While some claim that Texas has a “miracle” economy where everyone thrives, the facts tell a more complex story. Poverty has grown dramatically in Texas cities since 2000, and our state has one of the highest rates of income inequality in the nation. Ann Beeson, proud Texan and Executive Director of the Center for Public Policy Priorities, will share the latest data on how Texans are faring, why working families are struggling, and what we can do to ensure that all Texans have the chance to compete and succeed in life. We all want Texas to be the best state for hard-working people and their families. Join us to learn more about what’s driving our economy and what’s holding us back.
