At the inaugural Poverty to Prosperity Conference, Rise Together Bay Area — a collective initiative of 180+ business, government, nonprofit and philanthropic representatives — released a new report by the Insight Center for Community Economic Development with data representations from the UC Berkeley Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society, titled “Promoting Family Economic Security in the San Francisco Bay Area Region.”
This landmark study highlights the depth and breadth of poverty in the Bay Area in new and compelling ways, tests various types of pro-prosperity supports through economic microsimulations, and presents a set of research-grounded strategies for implementing a pro-prosperity agenda.
The report also makes available 110+ maps developed by the UC Berkeley Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society, documenting levels of poverty and opportunity across the region.
