On September 12–13, leaders from across the country associated with the Center for Neighborhood Enterprise (CNE) gathered for an Antipoverty Summit on Capitol Hill to discuss their effective efforts to address the needs of foster children, youth violence, financial responsibility, and the absence of marriage in many needy communities.
During the Summit, reform-minded, conservative policymakers of the Republican Study Committee had an opportunity to engage these leaders in the pursuit of more promising approaches that are successfully working to restore broken and impoverished communities. The event was a partnership between CNE, The Heritage Foundation, and Republican Study Committee.
