From Safety Net to Financial Stability: Book Discussion about "Losing Our Way"

3/17/2015 from 3:30 - 4:30 PM

ABAG members are invited to read Losing Our Way: An Intimate Portrait of a Troubled America by Bob Herbert, and join a critical discussion on March 17 to kick-off a new series of ABAG programs, "From Safety Net to Financial Stability”. In his eighteen years as an opinion columnist forThe New York Times, Herbert championed the working poor and the middle class. After filing his last column in 2011, he set off on a journey across the country to report on Americans who were being left behind in an economy that has never fully recovered from the Great Recession. The portraits of those he encountered fuel his new book, Losing Our Way. Let ABAG carve out time for you to step back from daily work and reflect on the role of philanthropy in our society. The Safety Net to Financial Stability Series of programs will explore issues along the service continuum of meeting basic human needs to building financial stability. It is collaboration between the Basic Human Needs and Financial Literacy and Asset Building Affinity Groups.

Spotlight on Civil Legal Aid
ABAG Member, the Maryland Legal Services Corporation (MLSC) has partnered with us here at ABAG to increase awareness and understanding of the value of civil legal aid among the members of Maryland’s philanthropic community. Incorporating ABAG member input and interests, we are working together to develop and conduct a series of four educational programs with ABAG members, each with a corresponding "funder brief.” Our programming is focused on emphasizing the importance of civil legal aid in meeting basic human needs of vulnerable populations and integrating legal aid throughout foundations’ portfolios. View and download the first ABAG Funder Brief: Investing in Justice
