Bridges Across Every Divide

Public policy attempts to break the stranglehold of multigenerational poverty have largely failed. Partisan efforts to build personal, family, and community resources and a strong middle class haven’t worked either. One successful approach, based on the Bridges Out of Poverty methodology, focuses on bringing people from all classes, races, and sectors together to reduce poverty and build a sense of community. Authors Philip DeVol and Eugene Krebs will join us to discuss their new book, Bridges Across Every Divide, which offers up both a common language and an accurate understanding of poverty, and the process for policy solutions in a harsh political environment. They will also give insights on why politics is so divisive. Philip DeVol, author of Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin-By' World and Bridges to Sustainable Communities, has been addressing poverty issues since 1997. Programs derived from his published works are in use in the U.S. and around the world. Eugene Krebs served eight years in the Ohio House of Representatives. Since leaving public office, he has focused on practical, nonpartisan solutions to major issues confronting our nation.
