Renewing the American Dream: Expanding Education and Opportunity

Thursday, January 16, 2020 - 6:00pm

A conversation with community leaders on expanding education and opportunity, facilitated by UVA President James E. Ryan.

The American economy is strong, but tens of millions of people are on the outside looking in, unable to overcome the struggles that mount from too little opportunity. There are communities that build ladders of opportunity so people can live better lives. Join us for a conversation about what we can do to include more people in the American dream.
