Poverty Law III “Poverty States” Conference Thanks (& Photos)

(Keynote Speech by Francis Fox Piven above.)

I would like to say thanks to everyone who came to this year’s poverty law conference at American University Washington College of Law, and to those who tried to come but could not because of the weather. Though neither the weather nor the March for Our Lives organizers consulted with me as far as timing of their “events,” it still managed to be a good gathering of poverty law people. There was a mix of new and more senior faces and a wide-variety of topics discussed. So thanks to all those who came, to my school’s special events office, especially Jennifer Dabson and Denise Richards, to the custodial and catering staff, and of course to Dean Camille Nelson for supporting the conference and the Economic Justice Program. Below are some more photos from the event:
