Economic Mobility and the Infrastructure of Opportunity

Economic Mobility and the Infrastructure of Opportunity

David Dodson, president of MDC, discusses how equity can be created by building an infrastructure of opportunity and removing the barriers in people's way. MDC helps individuals, families, and communities take advantage of all the supports available to them in health, nutrition, tax credits, and education, and conducts long-term, systemic-change work in communities across the country, with a particular focus on the South. This talk was given at The City Club in Cleveland, where issues of economic mobility mirror many of those that cities across the South face every day.
