In this webinar, University of Michigan social work professor Kristin Seefeldt will talk about the economic and residential segregation facing many low-income workers, particularly African Americans, and how those factors limit their families’ chances for upward mobility. Seefeldt will draw on research that appears in her new book, Abandoned Families: Social Isolation in the Twenty-First Century, and discuss a number of policy measures that have the potential to help vulnerable families get ahead.
