The impact of COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of social protection systems to address the social and economic shocks in vulnerable populations. During our upcoming Breakfast Forum, POTS will welcome a group of distinguished panelists from partner organizations to present and discuss the role of direct income as one of the main tools to fight poverty in New York.
Now in its eighth year, Part of the Solution’s (POTS) Breakfast Forum series has become an important vehicle for discussing issues that most impact our community. Join us to find out about our experiences, obstacles and successes as we strive to be part of the solution for the community of the Bronx.
