The White Working Class: Challenges and Opportunities

Date: September 19, 2019, 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.
Location: Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, One Federal Reserve Bank Plaza, Broadway and Locust Street, St. Louis, MO 63102  

Please join us for an event on the economic and other struggles facing the white working class (or those without four-year college degrees) as well as promising opportunities for moving forward.

The event will focus on the Eighth Federal Reserve District, which includes Missouri and several surrounding states.  The District, according to recent analysis by the St. Louis Fed’s Center for Household Financial Stability, is overwhelmingly comprised of the white working class.

Isabel Sawhill, author of “The Forgotten Americans,” will be our featured speaker; all attendees will receive a complimentary copy of her book.  A panel of regional leaders and experts will discuss compelling ideas to help working-class Americans achieve economic security.
