We have a rare opportunity on Tuesday afternoon for a conversation with Jodie Levin-Epstein, the Deputy Director of the Center for Law and Social Poverty (CLASP). CLASP is a think tank that develops and advocates for policies at the federal, state and local levels to improve the lives of low-income people. In particular, they seek policies that work to strengthen families and create pathways to education and work.

Ms. Levin-Epstein will talk about her work in the policy arena and ways the nonprofit sector can affect policy at the state level. She is the author of numerous publications, including Getting Punched: The Job and Family Clock, and she contributed to Mother Load, a special report by American Prospect magazine. Ms. Levin-Epstein created and continues to manage and host CLASP’s widely acclaimed national audio conferences on low-income and poverty-related issues.
